PDCC61 CP96 - Hello, Roses

Long time - no post!!  This card is based on the current color challenge from the Play Date Cafe (bright blue, wine and beige) and the sketch #96 from the Card Patterns blog.  I've been noticing lots of beautiful little roses on cards in "blogland" lately but boy can they be expensive!  Here's my solution -
This bunch of petite roses from Hobby Lobby retails for $6 (I got it for 1/2 off) and has over 30 blossoms in three different sizes and gobs of leaves.  Very economical and leaves more money for stamps, glitter and silk ribbon!!
Lots of A Muse stamp goodness here - Wild Rose Branch, Wild Rose, Leaves Trio, Daisy Duet and Hello FL.  There's a big sale on the A Muse site now - you should go check it out!
