Roses~Roses

Well, the baby shower I hosted is over....
I forgot to take pictures of most of it...ugh....
I so wanted to share it with you.....
I have a few I will share later...
but after a much needed break, I decided to work on a few challenges... 
and take the day off ~ doing what I want
I made a beautiful card for two challenges....
for Joan's Gardens, the challenge being
pink and white
use a die for a cut out
use leaves to embellish
an embossing folder

and for Cheery Lynn Designs, the challenge being
roses...

 I used pretty in pink cardstock from SU....
and my latest Cheery Lynn Die
Window Frame A (FRM 141)
Miniature Rose Die (B152)
a Marianne Creatables Die Leaves (LR0226)...all may be purchased from Joan's Gardens
and an embossing folder that is a Tim Holtz alterations....
the roses were cut with the same SU paper, I just sprayed them with Tattered Angels...

I also want to share a few flower photos from my kitchen garden
my double ruffled poppies.....
the seeds were given to me from my friend in Canada "Lana"

and my Clematis.....
