Crochet Rose and other Flowers

Welcome, thank you for visiting. 
We are home and sorted, and today I got into the studio and made this card.

I started this yesterday when I had to sit and wait for DH,  and made this crochet rose, and today I paired it with some green Prima roses.

I had an idea when I went to make this card, and this time it worked!! 

I had originally envisioned this card being upright, but the scripture stamp dictated that it became horizontal.  

The die cut was chosen so I could use the eyelets, which is a challenge put out to the members of a Splitcoast Stampers group, Stamp Addicts,  coming out of a discussion about unused stash, and we all had eyelets!

The butterflies added some balance...

And the paper lace just an extra feminine touch.  (oops, didn't see the rhinestone had slipped off centre from the glue dot!)

Thank you for visiting - may your day be blessed.

Hi Maxine! This is just beautiful. I love those little swirly things that come out from the flowers (don't know what they are, but they're very cool looking). This turned out SO elegant and sweet. Thanks SO much for sharing it with us in this week's challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I was super excited to see that you had linked up. I really appreciate it!

Wow, stunning card. I love the scripture and it also fits the die cut so well. It looks good with the sponging/ink, and the edge to frame it. So many wonderful embellishments.
