Roses, Roses, Roses
Along with the perennials I purchased on Saturday, I also picked up 3 new rose bushes for just $5 each. I love roses, only I have to keep them outside, so bushes work very well for me.
I already have established a peach, a yellow, and a red rose bush. Now, I've added 3 new red ones - 2 different varieties. I like that they come from a local greenhouse since then they should be able to stand the winters here in North Dakota. At $5 each it's worth trying.
I made these cards using the Manhatten Flower embossing folder from Stampin' Up! for the Big Shot. The red roses are embossed on Whisper White cardstock and then brayered with Melon Mambo ink. Two of these are brayered on the debossed side and one on the embossed side. The yellow roses are done on So Saffron with So Saffron ink lightly brayered on the embossed side.
