... a rose made from Rose Red seam binding! Seam binding is one of my favourite types of ribbon- it makes fabulous bows and is so pliable that it's perfect for this kind of flower. You start by rolling the end of the ribbon tightly to make the inside and then just fold and twist the ribbon round and round, sewing it as you go. I added two leaves made by scoring a piece of card stock and punching shapes out with my Blossom Petals builder punch.
I thought this ornate sentiment from Curly Cute worked nicely with the rose and the cages. I stamped it onto white card stock and trimmed it to fit the space in the split panel.
I thought I'd take colour inspiration from CR84FN, another challenge I've been wanting to join in with. I love this week's pink, tan and white colour scheme.

Every cloud has a silver lining and the gloomy grey clouds that have been annoying the UK with unseasonable rain lately have been the very thing that my roses like! My little garden is blooming like crazy! Once, a young man who was trying to be romantic, said to me: "Shall I compare thee to a summer's rose?" and I said: "No, because I'm bound to come off worst!"
Tomorrow I'll have something very different for you. Hope to see you then,
