Bling at CAS-ual Fridays

This week at CAS-ual Fridays our assignment is to make a CAS card and "put a bling on it"......I knew immediately what I wanted to do, because I've been enjoying our New Dawn roses which are just blooming on our arbor in the back yard:

New Dawn Roses
So here is my CAS take on that photograph, using some elements given to me by my friends Carol and Clare.  I used my bling for rosebuds:

CAS-ual Fridays bling

supplies: white cardstock, Cuttlebug Wicker Weave embossing folder, unknown vining leaf die-cut given to me by my friend Carol, rose from Clare, pink gemstones, The Crafts Meow Simply Delightful sentiment, VersaFine onyx black ink




I'll also enter this into Simon Says Stamp's "Anything Goes" challenge.
