A Rose Is a Rose

Good morning sweet friends
Today at City Crafter Cheryl is our hostess and she has asked that we create a project with a rose (or roses) on our project and this is the lovely inspiration photo for you


Our sponsor this again this week is the Digital Paper Shop 


And again we are using images supplied by Janet ... and you too can win one or two of her lovely images ...
Our talented Guest Designer is Mloda Kobieta ... who makes exquisite projects and cards

Right ... on to my project 
I chose to use the lovely vintage tickets for this project 


One of the best things about digital images is that you can alter the size to suit your needs and I enlarged this ticket for the front of my project which of course has pretty roses on it ... can you guess what this is? No ... not a notebook ...



It's a candle 'card' with a little pocket that holds that tag
and as you can see I used a smaller version of the ticket for the pocket and the tag...
And so you can see how it looks once the candle is removed ...


Of course I could have used an acetate front and put some chocolates in ... but I went with the candle ... I didn't have a template .. I just kinda made it up as I went


Pink paper and script paper are by Grace Taylor ... and I used a little piece of scrap text paper too

Please take a minute to check out all the DT samples and hopefully you too will be inspired to join us this week at City Crafter ...

Have a beautiful day and thank you for stopping by
