Sparkle & Shine Challenge #6: sponsored by Winnie & Walter

For the Sparkle and Shine CHallenge #6 I first stamped a rose, then die cut a circle and a rectangle to make a vase, but then was left with a shaker card...again...nope don't want to enter another shaker again!
Sadly that was the only rose stamp I have, so I went online and downloaded this coloring page from and adjusted the size to fit my need and printed it out on alcohol marker friendly paper.
I've added the stem as that wasn't part of the drawing.

Colored it with Spectrum Noir markers

Added Glossy accents as dew drops and a few silver colored sequins (which I think are Pretty Pink Posh)  a silver Hello  die cut from Simon Says Stamp.
On top of the sequins I've also added some glossy accents.
Mounted it on a similar colored mat and raised it with foam tape.

There was also a coloring page with roses in vases, but I prefered this one, even though the other was more fitting with the inspiration image...
