everythings coming up roses (MMM floral)




All the roses are blooming in my garden now...I tried to cut them back a couple of years ago because of the thorns but they keep coming back! I really like the deep reds of the petals with the raindrops on the leaves after last nights storms. I have made a rose inspired card today using a new rose stamp from Scrollswork. Have added a little bird and a butterfly and some glitter on the petals to resemble rain. The challenge over at Mixed Media Monday is floral so check out the other entries too. Have found an interesting group on flickr called Echo which has a monthly prompt ..so have added this photo of red roses as the theme this month is rouge
