I did this card about a week early, but then kept looking at it and thinking it was missing something (posted previously). The brown roses are some that I bought at the Scrapbook Expo in Puyallup. They were so cute, but really too big and bulky to use on a mailed card, or for that matter, most any card. So I cut the bottom off to make it flatter, removed a few pedals to make it a little smaller, and squished it down which I think made it more vintage looking.

I am real happy the way this turned out. I almost didn't do it because my leave die is so delicate. The purple leave is actually the negative of the die.
This will be a birthday card for CWRES but I want to keep the simplicity of it by not mounting a greeting on the front.
