Rose Bud Mothers day card

Hi and happy Friday ~

Finally I've done something with those little rose buds I was making last week. I played around with them for a bit, trying different styles of card, mostly they were a bit top heavy. Hopefully what I've come up with is nice and the recipient will like :o)

This card is for a friend to give her mum on Sunday.

I got the tutorial for the rose buds from Rae Barthel and I absolutely adore her card so drew inspiration from that for mine. I've used Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Purely Pomegranate, Confetti White and Kraft. I've randomly drizzled crystal effects across the petals to give a dewy look. Not sure if that worked or not lol.


  1. Beee-autiful!! Your Mum will love it!

  2. Gorgeous!! love how your card turned out, especially the shades of color you chose for the roses! I'm flattered that you liked my tutorial, thanks for the mention ;)

  3. Treesie - this is just gorgeous! I tried my hand at those flowers one time but no way did mine look anywhere near as nice as yours!

    I hope you have a lovely mothers day.......I'll be thinking of you!
