Hobby House Challenge

This one’s a first for me as I’ve not entered any previous HH challenges before, but was tempted when I spotted it was simply “Roses” – how simple can that be!!!   Here's the link if you want to join in the fun - Hobby House Challenges.

The card I’ve made is for a 25th Wedding Anniversary which proved a perfect opportunity for using Roses in abundance.  

I created an easel card using background paper from my digital stash (apologies as I’ve no idea where I got it from) matted onto red card & stuck onto cream cardstock.  I then stuck on a border of gold edged red ribbon and a border of deep lace bought in my local craft shop (but readily available in Ebay too!).  I printed the verse onto cream cardstock before cutting out with the large Spellbinders Floral Oval – I then cut a 2nd one in gold mirri card, before cutting off the outside of the cream one to mat it onto the gold one (if that makes sense).
The roses are all from Wild Orchid Crafts (only because I’d won lots earlier in the year & needed to use them up before buying any more), and the bow & little heart charm from my stash.  It's not easy to see but the roses have all been blinged up with diamond "gold" glitter glue which puts a beautiful gold finish on them.

 Finished off with a red 25th stuck onto a Spellbinders Shapeabilities label (borrowed from a friend so unsure which exact set it came from) in gold.

As usual I made a complementary tag holder & tag.
