Shabby Roses

Challenge Flower

I made these shabby roses after watching a you tube video on flower making, using the ribbon rose technique.  I used torn strips of calico for two and cotton crochet lace for the third one, putting them together with a hot glue gun (what a mess I made! and the burnt fingers... ouch).  The base card is light cream, embossed.  The sentiment label and squares are  die-cut in a slightly darker cream card.  Sentiment stamped in Versafine Smoky Gray for softness.  A heated triple bow in soft green organza ribbon with pearls to finish.

This is not one to post because of it's thickness, but would be lovely given in person.
