Christmas Rose Card In Colored Pencil

Hello Design Junkies peeps!  Lynda Joy here, to bring you a card using stamps from the Technique Junkies October Release.  And, oh my, what a release.  If you missed the hop, head on over HERE and check out what my design team comrades have made.  Now, on to my card for today...
Links to stamps and stencil from Technique Junkies:
     Christmas Rose JT025
     Victorian Greetings Set of 6  JT030
     A Colorful Life Swirl Grid Stencil
     Gifts of Christmas Set of 5

I stamped the Christmas Rose onto white card stock with antique linen distress ink so that the lines would fade in with my coloring, as I was going for a no-line coloring look.  I colored the rose with watercolor, and Polychromos colored pencils.

For the background, I used the A Colorful Life Swirl Grid Stencil.  I made a mask for the flower, and brushed color through netting part of the stencil, ever so lightly.

For the verse, I used the Merry Christmas from the Victorian Greetings Set of 6  .  I love the type script on the six phrases in this set.... so perfect for holiday cards.  

For the inside, I used the swirl parts of the stencil, and stamped a verse from the Gifts of Christmas Set of 5.
