Dear Patricia, 
I don't know about you, but I have Spring Fever. And when I think of Spring, I think of flowers and gardens.So today, instead of giving you a straight-up tutorial, I am giving you a Rose Garden!

I have 6 cards for you today that all use the Stylized Rose stamp, all using different mediums for coloring and vastly different backgrounds. I hope you love the flexibility of this stamp as much as I do!
