Happy Birthday Roses

I made this card for the Flowers challenge at SweetStamps.com.  I used Elegant Happy Birthday # 997 and Rose Surround Small # 7073 from SweetStamps.com .   I stamped the roses on 36# vellum using white dye ink and embossed them with Queen's Gold EP.  I cut them out using a 4 split tool and a piercing pad.  The coloring was done on the backside using a blender pen and Shades Dye inks- Tank, Forest, Sunrise Orchid and Fushia Fizz.  The background was done using a pouncer and Palm Grove-Shades Dye ink.  I die cut the oval using Cheery Lynn Design's Little Stackers Oval and outlined it with a gold leafing pen.  I used clear photo corners to layer the white cardstock to the green card.  The roses were attached using the red Tombow glue stick.
