ODBDSLC246 Sketch challenge

Welcome to this week's post for the ODBD Shining the Light Challenge.  This week's sketch challenge is an easy one!  I hope you can play along.  I turned the sketch on it's side and got to do some fun coloring with the new Fragrance stamp set.  I stamped the wild roses with Versafine black ink and colored them with watercolor markers.  I then fussy cut them out and popped them on top of my stamped verse.  The verse is black embossed and centered on square layers with the Layered Lacey Square Die in the back.  I also embossed the kraft layer with Memory Keepers Flowers embossing folder - it had little tiny roses on it that was just perfect with the stamp and image.  A little trio of pearls finished my card.  Hope you like it and can play along!
