A single red rose is of great significance to me as it has always been a "silent" way to say, "I love you".

Today's card pays homage to that special meaning.

In reality the rose on my stem isn't a rose, but it is a single Sweet Sorbet heart.  Hearts are symbols of love, and so I put it on a single Mint Macaron Stem to turn it into my symbol of love.

The delicate corner die cut was made with one of the dies from Artisan Additions Dies and was cut from another of the patterns in the Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP).  You can see the uncut version of the DSP design on the flap of my envelope.

The petal pink background was embossed with the Splatters Embossing Folder from Stripes and Splatters.  The multiple mat layers make the Single Stem Heart pop as they bring your eye to the focal point.

The With Love sentiment was stamped with Evening Evergreen ink and die cut with a Beautiful Shapes Die.  Three Flat Adhesive Backed Pearls add a bit of elegance to the card front.  If you have missed these pearls, you need to check them out.  They are not called iridescent in the Mini Catalog, but in person, they definitely have iridescence.  So beautiful and honestly, they were just what this card needed as a finishing touch!

The same DSP die-cut and matting was used to decorate the inside of the card.  With the placed on the Basic White rather than Petal Pink card stock you can more clearly see the beautiful details of this die-cut.
