A Classic Birthday Rose

This is another card I made at our Craft Retreat in bright. We were all having fun making cards with these beautiful Altenew dies and I have definitely added them to my wishlist!

The die set is Altenew 'Fantasy Floral 3D Die Set'. I coloured the dies with Daniel Smith Watercolours, adding a bit of white Wink of Stellar. I am not sure why the green granulated, but I actully don't mind the textured look it gives. I learnt thath the white W of S becomes more opaque as it dries.  The background die is from Kaisercraft and I can't remember which set the sentiment is from, but I'm fairly sure it's from Altenew.  To finish I sponged the edges of the background panel with distress inks and added a few pearls.
I'm entering the following challenges:-
Inspired by a song - The Rose
