You are Amazing

Hi everyone!
I have the great honor of being this month's guest designer at Ellibelle's challenge "I Spy With My Little Eye".
The theme is: Hearts and/or Roses

I'm not really the flowery type, but sometimes I can go in that direction. Maybe it's just a lack of practice....
My resolution for this year: Using flowers more often.

I die-cut the rose several times from a piece of Bristol paper that was colored with Merry Merlot and glued them close together on a blank sheet of Bristol paper. ....I saved one rose for later. 
I cut the finished sheet to size and backed it with another, slightly larger piece of white paper. I then glued this onto a blank card, some of the edges of which I colored in light blue. Filled the white gaps between the roses with black dots.
I stamped the sentiment on a strip of Bristol paper and pasted the rose and a few leaves next to it. Unfortunately, one of the roses was right on top of the one on the strip and I didn't like that at all. 
After some thought, I found the solution.... 
I punched out a heart from a die-cut grid and stuck it behind it. Perfect!
