lavender and roses

country garden thank you

The pink roses on this card remind me of the Queen Elizabeth rose bush I have in my garden.  I am waiting for that special moment when my first rose blooms. Mean while ... we still have lots of slushy snow!

This card was made with Hero Arts stamps:  French Post, Friend Definition, All Occasion Messages and the rose from Two Birds. Several Distress Inks were used including forest moss, old paper, tattered rose and victorian velvet. The background was paper embossed. The Friend Definition was embossed using VersaMark and white embossing powder.  The small rose with the pink pearl is hand made.  I entered this card in the 50grand HERO ARTS celebration and contest.

Thank you so much for visiting.  Take care and have a safe week!

  6. Susanne, thank you for visiting my blog...I am here on yours now and WOW! what can I say, I am in love with your vintage style and the soft, elegant way you have of putting your cards together. It makes me think of an English Garden, even though I've never seen one in real life.

    Blessings to you..
