Tag challenges with a rose

I’ve been wanting to take part in these fun tag design challenges for ages so seeing as my tags have been out on the desk I thought I’d give them a go.
The background was made by cleaning my brayer of paint whilst making some Gelli prints recently, simple as that, just rolled it over the tag and that was it.  Then i repeat stamped a rose on to it using a small stamp that came with February’s issue of Craft Stamper magazine, then used a couple of magazine cut outs of a red rose and a sign saying ‘be still my beating heart’.  I liked the result but felt it needed more to make it pop so i drew round the rose and petals with my gelli roll pen in fluorescent pink and highlighted the saying and the stamped roses so that it gave them almost a 3D quality.  The image does not show how bright the pink pen is sadly. Oh, and added a small piece of ribbon to tie in the green and pink of the design.
So i would like to enter this tag into Tag Along 25 Roses are red challenge and also to Craft Stamper magazine Take it, Make it challenge 7 using repeated stamping.
