Vintage Rose

Selected as a Favorite of the Week at Split Coast Stampers.

Hello, hello....

I am playing today in a few challenges. 
The challenge at eBrush was to use a provided stencil...who doesn't love FREE?!?
I am also playing at CASology in their BLOSSOM challenge, City Crafter with their inspiration photo and at NBUS Challenge having never used the stencil or the sentiment stamp (woohoo, a two-fer).

First you need to download the flower stencil here

I then cut watercolor paper to 5.25 x 4 inches. Watercolors were used for the background. I then eBrushed the flower using the free stencil.

Stamped the vintage letter background and finally stamped the sentiment. Edges are inked in black.
I absolutely love this one layer card!
