Hello Classy Friends, Diane here with you today.

Today I "picked" a bouquet of Roses for you and put them in an antique vase.
Well, not really, but close to it!!

I started my card with the gorgeous "Banana Split-Pop Tone 100# paper
which I ran through my Cuttlebug using the Darice Doily Lace Embossing Folder.

I cut a beautiful vase using Impression Obsession Vase set
This die is "new" to the store and you get 5 vase designs in one set to choose from.
After cutting the vase, I used Crafts-Too "Dots" Embossing Folder....
giving the vase an "antique hobnail" look.  I sponged TH Distress ink along
the edges of the vase using the "new" Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool to add my ink.

The tiny little Roses were made with another "new" die from Impression Obsession
that I just love called "Spiral Flowers".
There are five tiny little rolled flower dies in this set...they roll up quick easy, and
turn out so cute....you will see me using these again very soon!

My butterfly is my all time favorite from Joy! Crafts from the Butterfly Trio set.

That is my bright and cheerful card for today!
Don't forget, we have a weekly challenge with a fabulous prize you could win
