A Rose by any other name ....

Good morning,
                      This week over at 613 Avenue Create we have a brand new challenge
‘American Beauty’ with the optional twist ‘Use A Rose’.

We have three very generous sponsors this week…

Something completely different from me this week – no colouring!
It’s my turn to play the twist this week and I have used this lovely sentiment from The Stamping Boutique – ‘Quilt of Life Sentiment Stamp’



I used a Crafters Companion Embossalicious folder – Chantilly Corner.
I used Spellbinder dies to frame the sentiment.
Tonic Nuvo Pure Sheen Glitter
Gems and Tule from my stash
The roses were from Wild Orchid crafts.
Enjoy the challenge and please pop by my fellow DT members and leave them some Craft Love.
Hugs Sheryl xx
