Yellow Roses in a jar

Here's the photo inspiration for the Ribbon Reel challenge this week:


I carried yellow roses at my wedding, so they are very special to me.  Nowadays I would arrange them just like this, so my card reflects that:


supplies: turquoise card base, October Afternoon "Thrift Shop" background, EK Success corner rounder, paper doily, PTI  Friendship Jar and Friendship Jar Spring Fillers, vellum sponged with tumbled glass distress ink, white card stock, Hero Arts K5056 Garden Roses, versafine onyx black ink, Hero Arts digital Flutterbies, colored pencils, JoAnn's turquoise ribbon
