Roses are ....Pink!

I love that late summer flush of roses, don't you? They are such versatile flowers too. I have noticed that many of the old-fashioned flowers are making a return but roses are still in the mix. Talking about flowers, at the weekend I went to an autumn flower show at a place called Tesselars in the Dandinongs, just outside Melbourne. It was a stunning autumnal day - about 28 degrees and blue skies, with just a touch of a breeze to keep everything cool.

They had mass plantings of many varieties of autumn and winter perennials an the effect of the sweeping rows down the hillside in so many vibrant colours was amazing!

Love the snapdragons and salvias in paticular

There were no roses on display but my card today for the challenge at Unstampabelles contains roses.

The latest challenge at Unstampabelles is to 

Challenge #78: Use Acetate or Vellum

New KaiserCraft EF

Twist - create a new view
TIP: show us something new to look at..........

My new views are from the photo's from Tesselars of the flowers..........

I used vellum today and I added the sentiment to a piece by foiling it with my new hot foiling machine.

I die cut the roses (from a die by Memory Box - English Rose bouquet). Some old DP from SU and an embossed piece under that and a gold card base formed the platform for it all. 

My gold foiled sentiment on vellum was added under the rose bouquet, and I added too some ribbon and gold sequins for a splash.

The butterfly button was added last. 

You have two weeks to enter the challenge  - go to the blog and scroll down to the first post for April
