Bitten By The Bug 2-Rose

Hope all is well with my bloggy friends!! I have finally gotten my card done for the challenge that Bitten By The Bug 2 issued last week. It is to create a card, layout or 3-D project with a Cricut rose on it. I struggled with this one. Flowers aren't easy for me. So I got my Gypsy Girl and did a search for roses and decided on the cuts from Shall We Dance. They have this great single rose and this nice, I guess it is suppose to be a bouquet. I decided to go with both cuts. I did flip the single rose to face the other direction. I did all of my cuts at 2.25 inches. The rose on the inside is cut at 1.5 inches. The card shape, the bg paper and the sentiment piece are from Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Ten. I'm so loving doing these shaped cards from the Nestabilities!!! The bg paper is from Close To My Heart. My friend Lucy can hook you up with anything Close To My Heart that you might want or 'need'! The sentiment is from Scrappy Mom's Mini Messages stamp set. I popped the roses up on one thickness of foam tape and the sentiment is on two thicknesses. I finished off my card with some white faux pearls. Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
Come back by tomorrow evening and I'll show you my card I made for the challenge issued this week.
