The Sunday CD challenge - Ring of Roses

Its been a lovely sunny day today the nights have been very cold but the days have been cooler than of late. We managed to do some gardening, there's a lot to do, as I was unable to do any last year, at least we have made a start and hopefully the garden will start to look a lot better this year.
I have not done the challenge over the last few weeks as I was not well, apart from my stomach I am beginning to feel better, so here is this weeks challenge card.
This week the Sunday CD challenge is Ring of Roses, link to the blog here
My card is from the Roses CD by Robert Addams, its a lovely Cd full of gorgeous roses images.
I used this yellow peace rose and backing paper to match, I matted it on gold miri board and 3d the rose. I was going to make some roses but I did not have any ribbon to match the picture so I used two white ones and coloured them with pro makers, I added ribbon and some silk leaves to the side of the image. Place a white ribbon and bow down the side and finished off the card with gold peel offs and a few small butterflies.

We are forecasted to get rain tonight, although we are not short they have today announced that we are now in drought, there is not enough water in the rivers and wetlands to support the wildlife. Some areas of the UK have been in drought for a few weeks and have had there fish taken out of the rivers due to a shortage of water in the rivers.
I hope you had a lovely weekend, and until we meet again take care.
