Vintage Roses






I am so in love with this vintage paper and don't know the name of it. I think I picked it up at a scrapbook store. I wanted to use it with my die-cut frame. I used a Flourishes stamp of leaves and branches (Home Tweet Home) and cut it down considerably. Several of the leaves are covered with Stickles. The flowers are punched and I put glossy accents and dazzling diamonds on them to dry overnight. I am using a sketch (shown above) from the MMSC. I lowered my image and frame and placed to the left because I couldn't stand to cover those beautiful roses.

Benzi this is exquisite! I love how you positioned the frame so that you can still see the beautiful paper. That ribbon looks spectacular on this spectacular card as well. Just gorgeous!
