Sweet Stamps- Roses

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is Roses.
  I had such a terrible time taking a picture of this card- the gold shimmer from the Sakura Gelly roll pen (on the embossing) reflects and makes it look orangy.....the Coordinations cardstock is Scarlet Red.
  The image is stamped on Parchment Vellum and embossed in  Gold Sparkle Embossing Powder.
 The roses are colored with Shades die inks (Spots) in Valentine and Envy from the back side of the vellum using a bender pen. I used a beautiful Gold shimmery cardstock from Paper Temptress and cut out a frame using the Nellie Snellen ovals.  (I used the largest die and the 3rd largest die- cut them out with the smaller die nestled inside the largest to create the frame).
  I embossed and Swirls EF and sanded it, then added sparkle with the Sakura Gel pen. I used Copic R37 to color Rose Red seam tape to coordinate, and used another of the fabulous Pinque Peacock decorative Pins.
 Here is a close up of the embossing:
