Roses & Butterflies

Hi everyone!  Hope you're all having a great day!

I was playing with paper again last night.  My friend sent me a lovely card in a deep pink envelope.  The envelope was too pretty to throw away, so I made some rolled roses.  I wanted to mimic the rose spray on my DP, so I also made another rose using 120gsm printer paper and edged it with red ink.

I folded a square doily for the top of my card.  DP is 'Rose Garden' by Papermania.  My bow is seam binding, and the tiny butterflies were made with a Martha Stewart combination punch/stamp. Sentiment is from Hot Off The Press.

Thank You! for stopping by today xx

This card is right up my alley!
A wonderful way of layering. Love these doilies. And your handmade flowers are perfect. What I love about this card that you used all the colors of the PP for your embellishments. Fabulous!
