CCCB Week 13

This weeks challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog was to create a project with the theme of "English Rose" using the colors red, blue, white, and the optional color of rose. I'm just as crazy about all things English as I am about all things French. I would love to go tour the British Isles and see all the old castles and the beautiful countryside.
It's been a while since I've created any of my little paper roses but I knew that was what I was going to put on this card. Some stitching on some of the adorable October Afternoon paper I just got at my LSS, a little vintage seam binding and my little handmade roses are what I put together for this challenge. And look! I mixed patterned papers! LOL I'm going to defeat my phobia about that yet. ha ha
Paper: October Afternoon Thrift Shop, Bazzill and white cardstock
Tools: Nestabilities Labels Two (S4-162); EK Success Retro Flower punches, EK Success Daisy punch, Martha Stewart Rose Leaf punch and Frond punch, sewing machine
Miscellaneous: Oatmeal Cream Vintage Shabby Seam Binding

Have a great day!
