Grandma's Garden Rose

Unfortunately, we have been experiencing technical difficulties at The Stampbuzz recently. However, we are feverishly working on a new website and hope to switch to a more reliable Web Host very soon. As of now, I am happy to report that things are up and running and I was able to add a few new Impression Obsession stamps that just arrived, too.

One of the new arrivals is Grandma's Garden Rose.

For some reason, I've always had trouble colouring any kind of rose image in the past. With the coloured pencils (I used my Koh-I-Noors for this particular image) and Gamsol or baby oil, I slowly seem to be getting a handle on things. :)

The sentiment is from a clear Inkadinkado set (97608O - Expressions by Kathy Davis) and I like that it's quite large. Still, something with this card is not quite right. I think it's missing something, but what? HELP!

I have no suggestions for your card, because I always like the simple designs myself. I think it's just great as is. So exciting to see the new things on your site, and will be even more excited to see the "new" site!

(And I LOVE the Kathy Davis sentiment, BTW.)

I also love it as it is, but if I was going to add anything, it might be a little paper piercing in the corner. :0)

No, No No! You're not supposed to add things that I would love to have. As for the coloring of the rose - it's perfect. Pink roses are my favorite. Tend to like things a bit simple, too, and think your card is darling as is.
