March Rose's Challenge


     Happy Sunday morning!  It is that time of the month when our Bouquet of Rose's share a project with all of you. This morning I want to share a card that I made for one of our missing Roses.  Connie Rose was in charge of this months challenge and since she has been off exploring different avenues, Kerrie Rose stepped in asked us to create a card to send to Connie to show her how much we miss her.

     My card base is made from Pure Luxury card stock called Little Boy Blue.  My designer paper is Basic Grey, Pyrus, which has had it's edges distressed.  I found this gorgeous vintage girl at Far Far Hills, cut her out with a Nestabilities die, and sponged the edges.  Tiny brads and crochet flowers were added to the edge.  Thought it was the perfect time to add some of my Recollections gem swirls.

    Connie, we all know that life happens, and we hope that whatever you are up to, is enjoyable!  Miss you!

     Have a wonderful end to your weekend.  I hope to catch up on some commenting, so you might see me lurking about.  Please be sure to visit our other Rose's, which are listed on my sidebar.

I love that wonderful vintage image but it was almost a shame to cover up that Basic Grey paper! This card is absolutely beautiful and I'm sure Connie will adore it!
