CCEE2023 - The Rose

Vicky starts her month as hostess for the CCEE Stampers by telling us that the Rose is June's birth flower.  She said:  Symbolically, the rose has more meanings than one can count!

*  A pink rose means perfect happiness, while a red rose means "I love you."
*  A white rose signifies innocence, purity, and new beginnings.
*  A yellow rose conveys jealousy.

A bouquet of roses means sincere gratitude, whereas a single rose amplifies the meaning of the color (a single red rose means "I REALLY love you").  She asked us to make a card with a single rose or a bouquet of roses . . . or however many roses you want!  Happy Rose Day!

I've been playing around with the current trend of slimline cards.  The one I made for today's challenge has three single roses (not sure just what that signifies!).  I tried my hand at no-line coloring by stamping the flowers in gray and then coloring them with Copics.  They turned out pretty well.

Be sure to check out the CCEE Stampers blog for some more beautiful roses.

Love your trio of roses being representative of the some of the variety roses there are. Your long card format is perfect in displaying them so beautifully.
