For Patricia...

Happy Monday!

Todays card is inspired by the beautiful creations to be found on Summerhouse Crafts created by the lovely Patricia. 

I feel really guilty as due to a lack of time I always visit a list of blogs every morning however I very rarely have time to comment.  Therefore whilst I was making this card I couldn't help but be reminded of the stunning roses Patricia makes for her box's.  Hopefully this will go some way to explaining why I don't comment as often as I'd like!

I started this one with a sheet of First Edition Pare from the Floral Pavilion pad with a beautiful old rose print.  I cut several layers matted with pink and white cardstock.  Next I added a die cut from Spellbinders Filigree Delight die with the centre panel also curt out.

Next I added a 'frame' made with a thin border of the First Edition paper layered on white and then pink.  I added a few pearls on the filigree die cut peeping through the frame.

Finally I added the roses cut with Spellbinders Spiral Blossom one and two smaller roses cut with a Marianne die.

I hope you like my version of Patricia's roses.



  1. Good morning John,
    Now! you have made me "blush" thank you so much for the lovely mention.
    Your card is absolutely stunning, I love the Roses as well as your wonderful design.
    Papers are stunning, creation of all the "frames" is great. Must have a go at something like that.
    Have a great day
