Everything Is Coming Up Roses

I made this birthday card using the adorable stamp from House Mouse called Everything Is Coming Up Roses. I colored the image using crayola colored pencils. The sketch that I used is from this week's challenge at Card Makin Mamas. The base of my card is white backed in rose.
For the three strips behind the image I used white cardstock that I embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots) and then backed each in rose. The embossing is for the challenges at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge and Inky Impressions. I used a piece of rose paper ribbon across the three strips behind the image. I backed the image and sentiment in rose and added some pink rhinestones to finish off the card.
I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper Play: Layer It Up

Moving Along With The Times: Spring

Simon Says Stamp: Animal Antics

Kaboodle Doodles: Bling It Up

Everybody Art: My Favorite Things (pink, embossing, rhinestones)
