Pink Birthday Rose

Hi, I've had this die cut painted for a few days and finally got it finished on a card tonight.
It's the Penny Black rose die and I've painted it with acrylics mixed with some pearl white paint. I layered an extra section on top for dimension.

I'm linking up to the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps and More, the theme is Clean & Simple.

Inkspirational where it's a colour theme, to use pink and green.

Seize the Birthday is anything goes birthday with a toppings option of flowers.

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge the theme is spring flowers.

Materials used: Penny Black die; watercolor paper; acrylic paint; pearl white acrylic paint; leathergrain cardstock; sentiment sticker.

Hope you have a lovely weekend and thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
