Elegant Roses

Last week I found a gorgeous card by Lisa Addesa at her blog I'm in Haven that used 2 Simon dies, and I practically fell over myself to make my own version of her card, with some of my favorite things - yellow roses and hugs!

supplies: white, 3 Doodlebug yellows,  Green Apple and Green Leaf cardstock, Simon's Elegant Roses and Partial Cut Leaves dies, Big Scripty Greetings sentiment, Paper Sweeties Cookie Dough flower sequins

I first die-cut my roses, then taped them to my panel temporarily so that I could decide where to place the leaves.   After the leaves were cut and lined with 2 green cardstock colors, I then paper-pieced my roses and attached them to the panel.  Next I stamped my sentiment, popped the panel above my card base, then added some sequins.

It may not be obvious, but the leaves are partial die-cuts, so that they are attached to the panel at one end (and under the flowers), but can be pulled up and popped a bit.  Such a fun dimension!

Thanks, as always, for your visit!
