I am featuring Hero Arts Rose Stem clear stamp on my card today which is also available as a set with a coordinating die here.

I cut a base using X Press It Copic Blending card slightly bigger than I wanted & stamped the pretty Rose Stem stamp around the edges using Ink 0n3 Fadeout ink pad leaving plenty of white space in the middle of my card for my sentiment. I coloured the images with my copics and by the time I came to adding the black stamens in the center of the flowers I was struggling with being in pain & staying focused after recent neck surgery so I went for the easy option & used a copic multi liner and doodled them free hand as I wanted the black to really pop. I die cut my image using the largest of my Wonky Stitched Frames and mounted my image onto SSS Black card stock.

This challenge was to add a sentiment but I hadn't decided which sentiment I wanted to add & then I received a lovely thinking of you card in the post yesterday from my wonderful friends at Simon Says Stamp & an adorable Get Well card from our lovely Lols which really cheered me up and reminded me how nice it is to receive a handmade card especially when you are feeling a bit down so I decided to make my card a Thinking Of You Card. 

I used a sentiment from one of my favourite stamp sets Simon Says Stamps Sketched Flowers which I stamped using SSS Black pigment ink.
