I love creating cards using Kraft cardstock!  The coneflowers are colored using white pigment ink and a waterbrush. 

The Roses stamp set includes beautiful roses and sentiments.  I love the font of the thinking of you stamp.  The rose was colored using Copic markers and then a little pointillism around the image to give it texture.  I used the clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to highlight the rose after it was colored.  The frame is the 5x7 Reflective Moment Spellbinders die.
Here's the Design Team:
Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.
