Black Magic Roses

Hi everyone.  Hope your having better weather than us in West Yorkshire.  It's dull, dreary and raining.

I've been making roses with the Black Magic ColorCore cardstock again.  I've had this cardstock for years and only just come across it at the bottom of a craft box.  This happens to me quite a lot.  I buy stash, put it away, and then completely forget about it.  But now I'm enjoying using it.

I'm entering my card into the Papertake Weekly Challenge - which is - Grow Your Own.  You have to make a card with flowers that you have made yourself.

I used Rose Garden Collection by Papermania as backing paper.  Cuttlebug and Sizzix embossing folders. Cut a leafy spray on the Silhouette and stamped my sentiment using a JustRite stamp.  I made faux stitching by pricking around the edge of my card and then used a white pergamano pen.  I daren't use my sewing machines on paper/card, they were both very expensive computerised machines.  My decorative heart pin, bakers twine and pearl button are from The Petty Little Ribbon Shop.
Thank You for stopping by xx

Gorgeous card Sasha,I wish I could make roses that pretty, I bought a die to make some but I don't seem to be able to make them look very nice. I wouldn't risk using an expensive machine on card either, mine was in the sale but it does the job.

Your card is a handmade jewel; I am hopelessly in love with these roses. Love the embossing too and you can never go wrong with that gorgeous paper from Papermania:)

Have a great weekend!
