Hi - its time for another challenge over at Ruby's Rainbow and this fortnight the challenge is to use roses. Please pop over and join us at  - I look forward to seeing all your creations.
This was quite a difficult challenge for me as I hunted but don't own any rose stamps or digis. After some digging around in my stash I found this gorgeous decoupage rose left over from a Silver Wedding card I made a while ago.
The background paper is from Kaban and just complemented the rose so beautifully. The small orange flowers I made with a die from Cherry Lynn - miniature roses . I added some pearl beads in their centres and made 2 lovely pins. The with love sentiment just finishes of the card.
I would like to enter it into the following challenges -
toptiptuesday/let-me-call-you-sweetheart - My toptip is to always route through your old crafts stash as you can usually find something to fit a challenge without having to spend more and to try and make your own embellishments - I made my small flowers xxx
