I used a sketch from Sketches by Carly but reversed it.
I colored the roses (Floppy Latte) with Copic markers, leaving the stems and leaves plain black and white. I wanted a red, black, and white color combo for this card and felt that even a touch of green in the image would distract from that. I used four different sizes of Scalloped Oval dies (Spellbinders) to cut the image and the matting CS.
I used a plain, bright-white CS for the card base, and added a shimmery, glittery ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I layered on the image piece at an angle, then added the large red pearls (more of those I got in a box of goodies at an estate sale which I'm finally using after maybe 2 years!) The polka dot bow is layered onto a flower-petal shape cut from a bit of black, flocked paper and I added a white pearl to the center of the bow. A simple design, easily done with a sketch as the starting point.
