Recycled Yellow Rose for Friendship

Hello friends, I hope you are enjoying your weekend - ours is coming to a close, but it has been lovely and I am happy to say our temperatures are warming up too - although last night was a minus 6C Degrees - brrr!!  A yellow rose is for friendship - my husband gave me a bunch of yellow roses soon after we first met and I have always loved them - so could not resist this beautiful Roses by Anna Griffin Inc.

The card front has been embossed using Spellbinders Em-bossing Fold'ers Grid 4.25 x 5.5 in Single Sided using the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" - even on patterned paper it is so effective.  The heart doily is from my stash, part of a RAK from years ago and the sentiment from a free set with the Australian Simply Cards publication.

The yellow rose as been adhered to the paper doily using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Permanent Runner.  The card front has been popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares, finishing off with Celebrations Sweet Dreams Embellishments - Sequins randomly being adhered to the card front.

This card is linked to the following challenges:
