Techniques for roses

I have recently come into two different rose silhouette stamps - the wild rose from a•muse studio, and this rose from Sweetstamps.  To be honest, I probably have dozens of roses in my stamp collection.  They are my favorite flower to stamp.  However, these are my first rose silhouettes, and I am excited to be able to use some different techniques with my roses.

This technique is called Copic Colored Embossing.  Some places refer to it as Black Magic, but since Black Magic is now a type of paper (black paper with a colored core, part of the Coredinations line), I'm not calling it that.
It's a very simple card layout.  I tried various embellishments, but ultimately I thought the image was too pretty to cover up.  I can probably sneak a sentiment into the lower left corner if I need one.  The framing element is a Nellie Snellen die.  it is actually a square die, but I cut 2 and pieced them together.

Blogger is playing games with me :(
or maybe it is the telephone repair man. At any rate, if you get two comments so be it.
My first comment was: wow this is truly beautiful. Love the pink and black together. Roses are my favorite.
I dislike squares so was happy to see how you made a rectangle from a square. I never think of that when I am looking for a rectangle and all I come up with is squares.
