Black On White

Hi everyone!  It's a bleak summers day here in West Yorkshire.  We've had to bring the hanging baskets indoors as they were being battered by the wind.

I made this card a while ago, it was my first attempt at rolling roses, and I didn't like the finished result of the card, so I threw it in with a box of disasters.  But when I came across it again today it didn't seem too bad.  Perhaps it rearranged itself in the box - LOL!  I think it's the style of the card I like more than anything.  I love the sentiment, and the swirly background looks okay.  But I'm not too sure about the glittered leaves and the rolled roses.  I may try and remove those and try to improve on things.
Thank You! for stopping by today xx

Don't remove the roses!!! I love the dry embossed background and rolled roses. Your card looks great!!!!

If you really NEED to change something, try a different Nestabilities label to hold your sentiment. But I think you should leave it as it is.

Hugs and smiles

I actually like this alot and think the roses and glittered leaves a perfect additions. If you were to change anything at all I would add a smaller, less bulky ribbon up top that doesn't match your other ribbon. Does that make sense?

What are you talking about? The roses are breathtaking. And this was your first attempt? I think you underestimate yourself. They are perfect! I love that embossed backgrond and the shape of your card too. And the sentiment is a lovely focal pint. Gorgeous card; as usual :)
