#41 Ribbon and Roses

This week at Card Crafter's Circle, we've  gone crazy with RIBBON AND ROSES! We want to see creations with ribbon and roses (although any flower will smell as sweet)!  Our sponsor this week is Happileigh Scrappin' ... one of my favourites... and Leigh has generously offered a prize of all images our DT is showcasing for you! What a treasure trove!

I used Full Bloom Rose for my Thank You card....  My card is basic layers in it's construction, and the rose is assembled by paper piecing 3 layers, each one smaller than the previous.  The base is the whole image.  I have used DS tape to fix it, although the top two layers are lifted on opposite sides with foam tape, so some petals are close together (where fixed by DS tape) and others are further apart (when lifted with foam tape).  The pink and purple layers of paper and card are bound with pink organza ribbon, and gold edged satin ribbon.  Of course my camera flash has ping-ed the shiny of the ribbon and sentiment sticker.  I added pink pearls to the corners.

I'm entering this creation into these challenges....
Whoopsi Daisy - Make It Girly (23/9)                         Crafts And Me #102 Roses (25/9)
Moving Along With The Times  Make It Girly (26/9)   Dawn's Crafting BCA Think Pink (29/9)

Pauline, this is just beautiful. I so like the combination of gold and pink, and you've done a lovely job with the rose image and all the elements. You are definitely a leader we can look up to!
