Upcycled Birthday Roses

Hello friends, today I am slipping in a little bit of recycling - these beautiful roses are too beautiful to sit in a drawer unseen and makes a very pretty feature for a card.

I have cut out the roses using the Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles Die and lightly sanded the edges to add a distressed look - a favourite with me,

The smallest Die from the Die D-Lites Corners & Accents One has been adhered to the left hand corrners using liquid glue.  This has then been popped up onto the Amazing Paper Grace A2 Filigree Delight Card Creator - this has been backed using white card stock to highlight the beautigul filigree details. The layered rcycled image has been popped up using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares and a computer generated sentiment adhered to the lower right hand corner of the imageFinishing off with Want2Scrap pink pearls.  Nice and easy and so worth recycling - don't you think!
