Good morning everyone!

ODBD papers used: Blushing Rose Collection
I've chosen the minty green, light and dark rose along with the sand color and that darkest brownish color.  I started with the sand color base and stamped my roses then edged with Tea Dye an colored with Copics in the rose colors. I used the Blushing Rose paper to cut the Flourish Pattern frame and stenciled the stitch border with Tea Dye. The Fancy Foliage is minty green and the Beautiful Border is rose pink.  I also cut the mini tag from the rose paper and stamped the "A gift for you" sentiment on it.   Lots of ribbon and pearls to embellish!

When I think of Roses, I think of the beauty and wonderful fragrance of the flower but I also think of the thorns that pretty much every rose bush has. Thorns- like the thorns placed on Jesus head when he was crucified.  This was love, not that we loved Him, but that He loved us when we were still sinners!  He did this for us even when we were so far from Him! This is love!

I love all of the bits and bobs on this project!!!! Your use of the Vintage Flourish pattern Dies with the Beautiful borders dies and Fancy Foilage dies work so nicely together! And that bow just finishes it off with the pearl bling!
