A Rose is a Rose

I have my little Bella here with me today.  I have a friend that calls her my Mini Me.    
It is always a treat to have her here.  School will start before long and that won't happen much.
I wanted to be able to spend some time with her so I made a quick card for Mark's Finest Paper Sketch challenge with a twist.  I sponged my dp and my paper around my stamped image to give it a little of a vintage feel.   I got my trusty old fork out of the drawer and made my fork bow.   The image was colored with copics.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you are having a wonderful day whereever you are today.


  1. Shirley: This is an amazingly beautiful card, and a wonderful take on this week's sketch. Please know that I am very grateful for your participation, and really hope you've enjoyed playing along with us. I hope to see more of your gorgeous creations in the coming weeks. This is truly inspiring. Thanks for sharing, and have a great week.
