New Home

This is one of the 2 cards my Daughter asked me to make her ,the other naming card is finished will post next

I tried the buds for the card I hadn`t seen http://particraft.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/flower-bud-tutorial.html before I had made them but I don`t think I have done bad even made the really small ones but they are fiddly you can just see them they are behind the top one,I also tried the flower but didn`t put it on the card as it didn`t look right will have to wait for Sue blog in the morning though I have watched her doing it .
I suppose practice makes perfect , well here is the card

 And here is the rose I did

I have asked my daughter what verse she wants in it but has asked could she write her own thoughts
