I used a smokey shadow cardbase stamped with a sentiment from Say It Loud and embossed it with a leafy pattern embossing folder. I stamped the smaller rose from Roses in Bloom onto some polka dot Stampin Up paper, and popped up all three layers. The striped strip is also Stampin Up Paper which was layered over two rows of the very large border stamp from Victorian Frippery. I did a little zig zag and straight stitching and added a few of the pretty leaves from Roses In Bloom for a little additional color. The final touch was a little glitter to the flower center. Thanks for taking a look at my first card of 2012!
This is gorgeous Cathy, I love this colour combo, and the beautiful rose stamped on the patterned paper. The embossed background looks terrific too, great texture and depth on this beautiful card.
So pretty, Cathy! I LOVE the embossed background and the beautiful colors!

This is a gorgeous card ! I love the embossing folder you used. And I love the smokey shadow , I used that today too. It's a soft alternative to black. Beautiful flower and nice job on sewing. I will have to check if any new stamps came in yet. Great first card of 2012!
Love these colors...
and those roses are gorgeous!
A great take on the sketch...
and I think a great start to 2012!! :)
What a great card. You can do CAS so well. Don't let Carly sway you! Love the colors and that border is just so cute. I wish I knew how to sew on my cards, but I would probably just muck it up.
Great card--love the embossed grey background and your gorgeous rose! They make such a beautiful color combo!
Cathy, this is just so beautiful and elegant. The colors are so soft and sweet.
Ooooh, Cathy, I love this! The embossed background is super in that deep grey and the pieced rose is beautiful! Great job!
