Birthday Card

I made this for my MIL's birthday.  I used one of my new rubber stamp images from a set called, "Fragrant Rose".   Now is the time to stock up on Whimsy Rubber because all of it is currently 25% off regular prices - even the custom rubber! 
I stamped the rose with Walnut Stain Distress ink onto Copic Xpress It paper.  I coloured it with some of the new Copic colours that I got from LSL Diversified, and added some shading with water colour pencils.  Here is a list of the Copics used: 
RV63, 66, 55 YG61, E87
The newsprint DP was crumpled and distressed with a ruler along the edges to make it look aged.  Edges were sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I'm entering this card into the following challenges: 
Anything Goes: Distressing
Bearly Mine: Birthday card
A Spoonful of Sugar: Vintage/Shabby
Thanks for coming by for a visit today!
