I'm in love.....

with these rolled paper roses!



 I used some K&Company softly colored cardstock and love the way they turned out.  Here are some tutorials so that you can try these, too: Paper Flower Tutorial and Vicky's video.   I'm entering this card into Caardvark's May Challenge using this sketch:



Supplies: Hero Arts stamps CG179 Rose Background, stamped in worn lipstick distress ink, AR130 Handwritten Sentiments stamped in Palette Burnt Umber ink, ivory parchment cardstock, papers from Brenda Walton Small Wonders Girl designer mat pad, pale pink and yellow pearls, ivory ribbon
