A Rose for PBSC

Penny Black Saturday Challenge
Hard to believe it's July & time for a new challenge at PBSC.  Thank you so much for all the sweet comments & support last month with our 8th BD Blog Hop.  The randomly drawn winner from my post is #32, Tirpuunen. Congratulations! Please use the "Contact Me" field in the right column to e-mail me your choice of stamp & mailing address.
This month our challenge is to make a one layer card.  I pulled out one of my oldest PB stamps--Single Rose from 1999. I've always had trouble coloring it, but decided to try my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers--love the effect!  My card is made from 140 pound watercolor paper & I used silver ink with a satin embossing powder. The sentiment is also very old--1998.  It's from an Oregon company--Peddler's Pack--& I stamped it in Versafine Smokey Gray.  I added a few splatters from the same Zig pens & finished with a single PPP clear dot.  
I'm entering SSS Wednesday, Time Out, Virginia's View & Word Art Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
