My Love is like a Red, Red Rose

Good Evening, my card for today is for Rainbow Lady's Challenge which this week is anything Scottish.  I have gone for a famous poem by the great man himself, Rabbie Burns.   The image is from Chocolate Baroque.  I used chalks to start with for the rose and leaves, it was OK but it seemed a bit blotchy, so I used a red crayon and did some shading and blending.  To finish off  I got out an inkduster and inked around the image with a chalk inkpad.  The backing paper is a freebe from the very generous and extremely talented Jak Heath.  The cuttlebugged strip, ribbon and flowers are all from my stash.  The sentiment is computer generated.

I am also entering my card into Challenge 80 over at Sketch N Stash, - a free choice sketch,  pick any sketch
from their back catalogue and display it.  I have gone for Sketch No.40,  My old stash is the stamp and new is the white flower and the free paper from Jak, it has been in a file since before Christmas this is the first time I have used it
 Many thanks for visiting today
