Happy Birthday with Roses and Ribbon

It is so hard for me to do "real" flowers..i try and try..and i am never quite happy with them.  I think i am so stuck in a rut about "cute" that i have issues with "real".    Then because i have issues with "real" i have to find another way to be creative, sooo, i decided to go the paper pieced route..and that's what i did with this flower..i printed it about 6 times...all different colors and dp.  Oh and i did lots of texture too...embossing the card base, kraft paper and the white cardstock behind the rose.

This week at Card Crafter's Circle we are making cards with Roses and Ribbons.  This is my attempt at that challenge:

  3. Bonnie, all of the embossed elements are such beautiul backdrops for this pape pieced rose. The elements all work together so nicely.

  4. Really cool the mix of patterns!

  5. The paper pieced rose is quite lovely!
