Stipple Rose

I saw this card on Darnell's blog and just had to have that stunning rose stamp, found one on ebay and paid way too much shipping to justify the price of the stamp, but I really needed it : )
I inked the stamp with distress markers then cut the image out with a hardly-used Spellbinders die set.

Stamp - Stampin' Up Stipple Rose
Ink - Ranger Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick and Shabby Shutters Distress Markers

A simple pink card with some pretty rose paper that comes from a 12x12inch pad that I just had to have. . . . I don't usually buy 12x12 paper as the designs are usually too large for cards, but the patterns in this pad are beautiful : )
