WMSC#95-Roses in Bloom Get Well

I needed a Get Well card for my aunt and this weeks Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #95 has a wonderful sketch by Karin Akesdotter.  Here is her great sketch:
The flower on the sketch stood out to me right away and since my aunt loves roses, Waltzingmouse Roses In Bloom stamp set seemed to be the right choice for this card.
I have always wanted to try stamping an embossed pattern on an entire front of my card, and finally got around to it today.  It does take a while since I stamped and then embossed each flower, masking each one off before continuing with the next flower.  It does give a very pretty effect with the shiny white embossing.  I  diecut a PTI Tag Sale #3 and stamped it with a Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases sentiment in Sweet Blush ink.  I added a lace and pearl trim onto the tag and another rose stamped and cut in four layers and popped up with dimensionals.  For the top of the card I used more lace and some saddle-stitch ribbon to match.  The last touch, and one I LOVE is the new jute twine I got from the Ribbon Carousel.  Doesn't it match the Sweet Blush cardstock nicely?  I love the look of twine and now I have a ton of colors that matche my cardstock.  Thaks for taking a look at my Get Well card. 


Pretty card Cathy and I love the lace border at the bottom of your tag.

Gorgeous! I love all the dimension in your rose and the background of embossed roses! The lace and pearls are such a perfect touch!
