A single rose

My Mum used to have a lot of rose bushes,  She doesn't have as many now as she has reduced the size of her garden as she has got older.  However, I tend to be drawn to images of roses when I am making cards for her.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch
Pattie's Creations - Flower in the image
The Corrosive Challenge Blog - Hip To Be Square

I have used a polka dot paper that has been sitting in my stash for a few years.  The small floral piece is an offcut from another card.  I also used some glitter cardstock from DCWV.  The ribbon is from American Crafts.  The image is from Pattie's Creations and is coloured in copic markers R22, R20, YG63.  I added some white ribbon roses coloured with copic marker YG63.

Here is the sketch that I followed (fairly literally this time!):

  3. Hi Suze wow I love roses as well, we only have about 100 on this property we have now but our last home had over 500 which I planted all for colour and perfume. These ones were all planted by the previous owner. Such a pretty card your mum will love it and your added embellishments. I do hope your well? Another great card and thanks so much for sharing your talent with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.

  8. Very pretty work Suze. So happy to see you using an image from Pattie. Love those fabric roses. There is no way you can tell they used to be white.
