It's a beautiful card either way... If you did add a sentiment I agree with TeeGeeDee a short one that's white embossed on black would work nicely but totally not necessary, it's a beauty all on it's own. TFS

I think your card looks wonderful. Your roses are colored very nicely and look realistic.
I feel like a card doesn't always need a sentiment - especially if the stamping takes up all the space and you don't want to cover up all your hard work.. In that instance, it looks better without.
If you were to add a sentiment, I would stamp it on a strip of black paper and heat emboss it in either white, silver. or gold. Then place on the left. You might also consider stamping the sentiment on a strip of vellum then heat emboss and place it across the roses. That way the roses will still be visible. I hope this was helpful.

This is so pretty, Anne. I think roses are very difficult to color and show realism. You did a terrific job on them. About the sentiment...when making cards for my stash, usually leave them with out one until needed. Then it can be more personal. TFS

This is GORGEOUS as it is. If you want to add the sentiment, this is what I would do. Use vellum and put it across the leaves between the bud and larger rose. I wouldn't go all the way acrosseither, and maybe even die cut the left end so it would fit up against the scallop edgeing. I think I would also emboss in black.
