Mulberry Paper Rose

I started this card off with the Martha Stewart Punch around the page die and the Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady paper and tag.

The flowers in the paper reminded me of those paper thin wild roses, and I thought well maybe I can make one of those, so I took Paper Studio mulberry paper and cut it out with Spellbinder Big Scalloped Circles Lg.  I did this card awhile ago so I am trying to think how many layers I did but I think it was 2-3 of each of the three smallest size dies.  Then I misted them with some Tattered Rose Glimmer mist and then crunched them all up, let them sit for awhile and then careful pulled them apart, layered them and put the brad through the center and scrunched again, I was pretty happy with the results. Added some Martha Stewart leaf punch, which I did some embossing on to make veins.

Hand stitching around the punched out piece and added some Lemon Yellow Liquid Pearls to the center.

Well one step forward and two steps back is how I feel this morning, I was able to get a few things done yesterday but still thought it was a pretty easy day, but this morning I woke up feeling yucky again, I keep telling myself that they say these colds last anywhere from 7-10 days so maybe this one is just going to last 10 days, today is the 7 day mark. 

I NEED to get groceries, so my hubby said this evening he would go with me, so no craft night with the ladies tonight.  :-(

I hope you all are doing well, and didn't get too much snow, we were lucky here and it went just around us, although my hubby is bummed he wants snow for some reason.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
