I Love Roses

Hello!  As the picture of Double Delight  roses by my blog title suggest, I love roses. Sure miss growing them like I did when living in California. Anyway, here is my card for Darnell's NBUS Challenge #5 .  

Two NBUS goodies show up here, the wonderful embossing folder from We R Memory Keepers called Bouquet, and the rose and leaves dies from Essentials by Ellen called Bold Blossoms. I think they are both wonderful. What do you think? The lovely card base is called Pale Plum, a retired color from Stampin' Up! as is the touch of color, called Garden Green. My mat is called Ash, a gray paper from Bazzill.

Not being sure if the focal point for this card is the background or the single rose, I completely left off a sentiment. Besides, the card is for a card drive sponsored by Jaydee and is intended for a hospitalized cancer patient. The nurses, as I understand it, write inside and give the donated cards to patients. You can find more information on the drive by following the link to Jaydee's blog.

That's all from here, a beautiful fall day in Minnesota. I hope you are having a wonderful day! Thanks so much for stopping by.
