Wild Summer Roses

     Wild roses always remind me of summer and the lovely, coral-pink, bushes of them which grew next to my grandfather's cabin in the mountains of southern California.  There were dozens of plants and they seemed to increase each summer.  Though the blooming season was short, they always said "summer" at the top of their delicate, flowery, voices.  :-D

     When I saw this delightful image of wild roses at Beccy's Place, I just had to use it on a card.


I was inspired by the inspiration colors at House of Cards.


     I used my ProMarkers to color  the image and then cut it with a die from Spellbinders.  The lattice work was also a die from Spellbinders and was actually a scrap from another project.  The dp was left over from a scrap booking page and the bow was tied by hand using burlap ribbon.  The sentiment was printed, hand-cut, matted, and hand-cut again.

What a lovely story about the wild roses next to your grandfather's cabin, thanks for sharing it NC. You had me picturing their delicate petals and pretty fragrance.
Your card is fabulous, the roses are coloured beautifully and I love the pretty paper you used. The little bow is a lovely finishing touch.
