Toffee Rose ~ A Rose is a Rose

Started the card with a dusky taupe base card then cut a caramel coloured card slightly smaller and pierced holes all around the edge of it, I joined up all of the holes with a chocolate inked pen to make faux stitching.
I inked up the sentiment with close to cocoa ink and stamped this in the top section of the card then wrapped a ribbon around and knotted it before attaching this to the base card.
On cream coloured card I stamped the rose stamp using close to cocoa and caramel ink then carefully cut out the rose and leaves and mounted them onto the card using foam pads.
