Pink Roses

I can't believe the weekend is already here!   I was out trimming some of my rose bushes and when I came in decided to make a card with roses.  I used the Cheery Lynn Build A Flower #2 dies.

I love the elegance a white embossed background gives, so I used one of my Marianne Design embossing folders.  This embossing folder also cuts out openings, so I attached it to a piece of pink card stock.  Before doing that though, I decided to add a dainty border along both sides.  I used the Cheery Lynn "Daisy Lace Bracelet" border.  I added adhesive down the side and only left about half the the border sticking out, which gives a whole different look to this border.  The rose was created with the dies from Build A Flower #2. The petals were die cut using white card stock and sponged with "Spun Sugar" Distress Ink. The baby's breath is from the Build A Flower #2 Embellishment die set.  A pretty silk bow was added.  I use the Bow Easy template to create my bows.  When you use the Bow Easy, your bows always turn out perfect.  

I hope you are having a fabulous weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.
