Roses are red.

After the tenth attempt at making roses I was ready to give up. Then I chanced upon this tutorial and well there was no stopping me.
When I saw this lovely sketch by Danette of the Sketches4all forum I knew where my roses were headed.
So I folded and glued all evening yesterday and this is what I came up with;
Up close.
I cut up an old envelope into 1 cm strips and made the roses then punched out some leaves with a leaf punch. It looks complicated but is quite easy, very easy and they stick well to paper with regular glue stick.
My card will be part of these challenges;-
Scrapbook sisters- flower power.
Paper Cutz challenge # 63- anything goes.
The ABC Challenge- F is for................ flowers.
Other lovelies challenge- G is
Polka doodles- make your own embellishment.
paper take weekly- 3 of a kind ( layers).
Tuesday throwback- 3 of something (layers).

On a down side, I have a weeks worth of family laundry to do today ( by hand- yes, we still do our laundry by hand and hang it out in the sun).
Lastly, can you guess what this is (duh, a pumpkin) but would you guess it is a CAKE! Check out Ashlee's amazing work.
