Creating The Garden Rose.

A Fun Tip:
The Rose on this card is actually a pin that the recipient can wear over and over again. All you have to do is adhere a pin back to the Rose and cut a slit into the card front with a craft knife.  Then push the pin back into the slit to hold it in place.  To make your Rose even more realistic add a spray of Floral Scent to your Rose.

Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win the punches that create the Floral Rose.  All you have to do is leave a comment on any or all the posts from now until Midnight June 28th letting us know what you thought of our projects from now till then.  The more comments you leave the more times you will be entered into the drawing.  So comment every day for more chances to win.  Also if you are a follower of our blog or facebook let us know and we will enter you in for each site you follow us on.  Plus If you follow our designers blogs let us know who and we will enter you in for each designer you follow.  We will draw a lucky winner on the morning of June 29th and announce it on the blog.
