Lilac Roses

Good evening folks.
I'm back with another card to share.
This time it's to announce the start of a new challenge over at ATSM.
This week you can 


Here is my card which I made with an eye to a couple of challenges out there.

For this card, I used a new stamp that I picked up from a sale a month or two back. Its part of a set from Stampendous. To start I stamped the 3 rose cluster in black then masked them off and stamped again to make a larger bouquet. Using Copics, I coloured the roses in purple, looks rather blue in the photo, and then the next step was to cut out the panels with part of a MFT blueprint die set. I replaced the die cut panels on a white linen base card then sketched in the missing bits with a pencil, easier than stamping!
The happy (Wplus9), cut in silver was glued over the panels and anniversary (HLS) was stamped in black.
This week we are sponsored by
