The Roses Challenge

Happy New Year Blogger's


Hello, hope you're all rested after the Christmas festivities and that santa was good to you. Not sure I really deserved it but he was very good to me!   It's been good to have some time away from computers and my craft room but now I'm itching to get started again!

What a great way to start off the new blogging year....... with the ROSES challenge!  The Roses are a group of online friends who challenge each other each month.  This card  is actually for the December Challenge from last year :)  and it was my turn to pick the challenge.  I asked the girls to make a collage card using  a vintage image, lace, ribbon, glitter and one recyled item from Christmas.

Here's mine:



I've used the pretty bowl of roses for my vintage image. The lace is threaded through with fine satin ribbon. See the mother of pearl button .... that's my recyled item.  It's the spare button from a pretty blouse I received at Christmas. My die cut rose ......I hope you can see, is liberally sprinkled with  glitter.

I can't wait to see the cards the girls made why not join me, you'll find all the links under the DT tab at the top of my page.  


See you soon.............

This is so pretty, Sue! I like the little bird you added. I must have missed that the recycled item was to have been from Christmas -- forgive me???
