June is for Roses!

Hey blogger friends....thanks for stopping by again!

The weather is heating up and summer is just around the corner.  Flowers are in bloom everywhere and roses are a favorite of mine.  And, it's a favorite for our Double D Challenge too.  Our first challenge topic for June is "Rose Garden".   Show us your handmade, stamped, die cut or purchased roses.

There are creative badges and a random prize to be had!

Our mood board offers beautiful inspiration for this challenge...

And, here's my rose inspiration...
"Best Mom"

I created this rose inspired 6" square card for my mom on Mother's Day.  This was the first card that I made with hot press foil and I've fallen in love with it!  Such an easy and awesome technique.  The "Best Mom" sentiment is hot pressed with gold foil on white cardstock.  I used gold foil cardstock as the matting and die cut an oval window around the sentiment.  The die cut oval in the top layer of floral paper surrounds the gold.  I used the bits of gold cardstock and made a few flourishes to accent the flower arrangements around the oval window.  The flowers matched the paper perfectly!
