My handmade roses and rose buds with Poppy dies

Hi Blogger friends,

Today I am so excited to share with you this card that turned out better once done than I ever anticipated.  At least in my eyes anyway.  This card was inspired by Becca Feeken's card I really loved it and wanted to create one with a twist using my newly made roses.  Oh what fun!

So while playing with some of my die cuts to make flowers it came to mind to try and make roses with my Heartfelt Creations Poppy die set.  Success!!!!!!!!  I told a friend online I made some roses and rose buds with the Poppy die, I am sure she was laughing while saying if anyone can turn a poppy die into a rose, it will be you.  LOL  But it was true.  She was really surprised to see how pretty it was once she received her card in the mail.  The next time I make more roses with this technique with the poppy die, I will take photos to show you how I make them.  For now here is the card I really cherish and can't send out just yet.

There are many dies involved in this card, but every little bit of work was so worth it.
