A Red Flower - New Challenge Blog

This is the first week of a new challenge blog - Make My Monday, which is owned by Jacqueline Dee of Deezine Arts,    I am so thrilled to be part of the Deezine Team, along with Cath, Fliss and Suzanne B, who have made for our first challenge some stunning red flower cards. We are a weekly blog, with some exciting challenges ahead, there will be  Top 3 winners each week and an overall prize winner once a month. Please read all of the rules on the blog. For our first month the Theme is Flowers,  the theme will change monthly, the subject will change weekly. So enjoy, have fun and good luck. We would also greatly appreciate you displaying the Challenge Blog logo and letting your blogging friends know of our launch.
On the background of the card I stamped the  large corner  rose stamp, the small leaves and roses from a Creative Expressions Rose set by Sheena Douglass, embossed with gold E.P. Coloured in with watercolour pencils. The large red flower was made with my Cuttlebug,  I die cut 4 layers of paper and 2 layers of tissue paper with a large scalloped octogen die. Wet them, scrunched them up, joined them together with a brad, then shaped them into a flower shape whilst still wet, allowed to dry, then teased into shape again.
The sentiment is from Inkylicious Trees set, again stamped onto a die cut from Small Octogons set.
Fire Brick distress ink was rubbed around the edges of the sentiment and the main card.
