A Challenge Card for Allsorts "Blooming Blossoms"

This morning I decided I wanted to have a go and stamping and colouring a rose using my Clarity rose stamp, but when I came to look for a red inkpad I couldnt find one so having to order one for another time I decided I would have a go at this rose above which I had found on the Heartfelt Creations blog, and as Id bought several of their stamp sets from Oyster Stamps on Friday when we went to a Craft Fair in Bristol I decided to give it a try and this is the result, hope you like it.
The rose itself was created from using three different sizes of roses they are stamped onto three different colours of paper, the first was a pale pink the second a yellow and the third a dark pink you emboss them with white embossing powder after which you cut them out by hand. You then cut down the petals of the roses and shape them with a Deet Tool which is one I use for my Floral Punch Craft, I then mounted up the layers and stuck them together with a bit of silicone glue.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of dark green card, I then searched around amoung my folders on my computer to find the right paper for the background and this is a freebie from Raspberry Road, I then stamped the leaves on it with green inkpad and bleed out the ink into the leaves. The sentiment is the one that came with my Clarity Rose stamp and thought it was appropriate for this rose as well. I then mounted my rose over the leaves in a place I thought was right.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
