Roses

Hi all! this will be a short post. I have quite a busy day ahead of me. I made this card using navy cardstock. The burgundy ribbon came from Hobby Lobby. The roses were made with patterned paper that I had in my stash. I also used Rose Creations from Spellbinders and Foliage from Spellbinders. The sentiment is from JustRite's Birthday Kit and I cut it out with my Petite Circles Scalloped Nestabilities. To make the Roses, I used an embossing mat and embossing tools 3 mm, 4.5mm and 6mm that I purchased from A Touch of Grace Paper Boutique. I have been watching Jerri's blog and I love the way she makes her flowers. I feel like I am finally getting just the right feel for these tools and it is so much fun using them to make these flowers. The butterfly came from Martha Stewart and I added pearls and spacers to the middle of the flowers.

I wish you all a very happy weekend!
