The Rose Mother's day card

Hello everybody,
I hope you all are having a good week , like I am. I would like to show you guys a card I made using recycling paper. We went to Lowe's looking for paint, for my hubby's project, and right there in the design color area I found this rose . It look so real and pretty, I had to do something with it. 

I'm very proud of this card, because I did it with every thing I already had and had used before in previous cards. The music note paper I had for over 6 months, I love to use it and is time to go get more. While putting this card together the song "The Rose" kept coming in my mind. Also the movie (sigh) so romantic.
But I decided to make it a Mother's Day card.

The ribbon and the gems are from stash. I used Spellbinders dies to cut the  image and the inside paper. I distress with Tim Holtz distress ink walnut stain.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Clear it out challenge "Karaoke challenge"
  2. Tuesday throw down#95 "Use some sparkle"
  3. Bunny Zoes crafts #23 "Ribbon or twine"
  4. The Pixie Cottage#118 "For Mom"
  5. #31 "Ribbon and sparkle"
  6. Deep Ocean challenge  #23 "Use Punches/Dies"
  7. Art with no boundaries#6 "Anything goes"
  8. Chocolate Coffee Cards#11 "Bingo" I used distress,punches and ribbon.
  9. The secret crafter Saturday  "Inspired by a film title"
  10. "Happy Mother's Day & flowers"

  15. Great card ! Tks for joining us at House of GILLI Challenge Blog !

  16. Fantastic! Great use of a magazine page with that rose. I always get excited when I use supplies that I've had forever, or what feels like forever. It seems like more of an accomplishment.

    My goal this year is to do just that because my studio is looking too much like one that belongs to a hoarder - Yikes!

    I'd be thrilled if you joined us at Tuesday Alchemy:!

    Lots of joy,


Thank you for coming over and leaving a comment. I really appreciate your visit,
Love always, Elisa
