Paper Roses

Yes, I know, I should be making Christmas cards, but after seeing Brenda demonstrate her beautiful paper roses at the Sir Stampalot Demo Day on Saturday, I just had to have a go at making some for myself. I bought the required 1" flower punch at the demo, and made a couple with that. Then I remembered that I already had the matching tiny one, so I made a tiny rose too.

I couldn't resist buying another Sarah Kay stamp, and thought that she and the roses would go well together. The tiny rose became a perfect decoration for her hat. She seemed to be looking for something, and just then a butterfly alighted close by. I coloured Sarah and the butterfly with Promarkers. A few leaves and star flowers completed the picture. The background paper is by Papermania, and the butterfly is from Craftwork Cards.

Anyway, must go. Got an owl to shrink......

Wow, Lynne! Such a wonderful card! I love the roses, especially the tiny one! I don't know if I could do one that small, but I may well have a go now! You are doing cute like an expert!

Cute like an expert? Oh dear!! No hope for me then!

A shrunken owl, now I must see that!!!!
Your card is gorgeous Lynne, especially for someone who doesn't do cute!! and what can I say about those roses, they are lovely. However did you manage to do one so small, that must have taken incredible patience. It works in Sarah's hat a treat.
Here's to many more blogging years!!
