Autumn roses

When I saw this weeks sketch over at unscripted sketches on Saturday I just knew exactly what I wanted to do.I ADORE these Cosmo cricket papers and love the chance to use them - especially so sparingly as it means that I can get more crafty projects out of them !!

Being a perfectionist I am not especially happy with my roses as they are hand cut and rolled and all slighty different sizes ! I have added the rolled flower dies to my wish list so roll on Christmas !!

I would also like to add my card to the following challenges;

Clearly iStamp
- Patterned papers
Craft your days away - Make your own flowers
Crazy 4 challenges - Colour combo
Crafty pad - Autumnal colours
Critter challenge blog - Photo inspiration
Come and get it challenges - Colour combo

Thanks so much for visiting me today - leave a comment so I can hop over to your blog and see what you have been up to x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo

Oh the different sizes just add to the card. Oh I love the design of your card. Can I use it as a lift for inspiration?

Thanks for playing in Clearly Inspired Challenge. The new challenge was posted today so I hope you come over and play again with us.

Hi Suzie, your card is just STUNNING! I think the slight difference in each flower gives it character, and is far better than perfectly uniform ones would be. ;)

Great to see you join THE CRAFTY PAD challenge, thanks so much!
