Stampin B's Design Team Meets 'The Rose'

Want to hear some good music? It ties in with my card for the Stampin B's Design Team this week. I was inspired by this song, THE ROSE by Bette Midler.  In my opinion, this is
a beautiful love song.
This week, the Stampin B's have another fun challenge (#95) from NancyRuth to be inspired by a song title. I wanted to do Book of Love in the movie Shall we Dance (2004). Does everyone love that movie as much as I do?  Oh, that escalator/dept. store scene was so dreamy. But,  I didn't have what I needed to do that card so I moved on to Bette Midler's awesome song, THE ROSE. Love it just as much.

My card was cut with the Cricut. The image I used is Vintage Rose from Stampabilities. I did the ink marker to rubber, huffed and stamped. Filled in a bit of the image with copics. Then, I cut out another rose and popped it up after adding Stickles to the edges.
I used some unknown designer paper with musical notes behind the nestie and on the sentiment. The butterfly is vellum and edged with a gold leaf pen, then added a gemstone. The ribbon finished it off.

We hope you'll join this fun challenge here and be sure to include the song title in your description.
Use the Inklinz tool to upload your card on the Stampin B's blog or upload to the SCS gallery.
