Fun, easy sketch today! I used ovals instead of a rectangle & flag, but otherwise it's the same.
I stamped the roses a few times & colored them with Copics. One image I die cut using an oval die and my out of the box Nestie technique. I have to say this was one of the most challenging Nestie out of the boxes I've done, w/ those tiny little stems!
The rest of the roses were fussy cut. The floral oval & ODBD/Spellbinders elegant ovals were embossed w/ the Swiss dot folder & I touched each of the raised dots w/ the white marker. The white die cut Quatrefoil Pattern die was attached over a dk red layer before everything was attached to a 5.50 x 4.25 card.

The detail on your card is absolutely stunning. Beautiful, beautiful, detailed work! The coloring, the placement of your roses on both layered dies. And the sentiment - frosting on this gorgeous creation. Absolutely outstanding! Into my favorites.
