Red Rose Day!

This week's challenge at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is Red Rose Day, which is today. It's an actual holiday and here's some information about it, courtesy of Holiday Insights.
Red Rose Day is a time to enjoy and appreciate America's favorite flower.....the red rose. A red rose signifies love. A June setting for Red Rose Day is very appropriate, as this is by far the most popular month for weddings. And, they are in bloom in the gardens across America this month.
In addition to being the most popular cut flower, roses are also the most popular flower in flower beds and around foundation of houses, garages and sheds. They are easy to grow, producing a bounty of sweet scented flowers from June up to the first frost."
My Outlawz Coloring Challenge teammates, Carla, Penny, Karen, Vannessa, and I challenge you to create a project with at least one red rose for this challenge. You can use any coloring medium you like, just as long as you color! 

Our June sponsor at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is
Fairy Tangles Art (Norma J Burnell). Norma is offering our lucky winner three digis of their choice from her Etsy shop..  Play along with us for your chance to win!

Here's my card with Sweet Pea Stamps/Ching ChouKuik's Black Rose Fairy.

Black Rose Fairy was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers. Her cheeks received a touch of blush courtesy of a chalk pencil. Lipstick Red Spica Glitter pen (Imagination Int'l) was used on her necklace and Black Spica Glitter penwas used on her dress.

The image panel was die-cut using one of the Rectangle Nestabilities dies (Spellbinder). Red cardstock was die-cut using the next largest die. Black patterned paper was die-cut with the next largest size. A Fleur de Lis Rectangle Nestabilities die (Spellbinders) was used to die-cut black cardstock.

Very old patterned paper from the Black Tie collection (Basic Grey) and polka dotted patterned paper (unknown) were layered. Red cardstock was die-cut with the Double Scallop Border die (Die-namics), Scalloped Corner (QuicKutz), and a Fancy Tag (Spebllbinders). Sparkly black vellum was die-cut with the Alison's Ribbons die (Cherry Lynn Designs) and the Thanks die (Elizabeth Crafts).

The card was assembled, red rhinestones (Recollections) were added, and I called it done.

Thanks for visiting today!
