English Rose

When I saw the colour challenge at Just Us Girls I just had to play along - love it!  I wanted something elegant and something that I haven't used before and decided on this embossing folder from Sizzix which I bought years ago (over 5 to be precise 🤦‍♀️)!  
I didn't want to hide too much of the detail, so I went with this simple single stem rose.  The sentiment is from a Waltzing Mouse Stamps set Big Day Today.  I love how the script echoes the swirls on the embossing folder.

Here's the colour inspiration at Just Us Girls Challenge #563 - gorgeous isn't it!  

Make My Monday Challenge #136 has a Thankful prompt

TGIF Challenge #291 also has the following graphic

Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #503 is a hand stamped or die cut sentiment

Little Red Wagon Challenge #576 is to Say It Loud (hope my sentiment is Loud Enough) and there is also word art in the embossing folder!

and NBUS Challenge #20 because the embossing folder was NBUS!

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you enjoyed your visit.  If you leave a comment, I'll know where to find you and can return the favour!
Hugs and stay safe!
