Rose for a Rose

This year my mom's birthday falls on Mother's Day, and I wanted to create a card that celebrated both. Her name is Rosalinda (beautiful rose), so I wanted a card to play off of that.

I used Rock Princess for the rose cut, which included a lot of layers. This was the first project I made with that cartridge, so it took a little getting used to. The banner is from Formal Occasion, and the letters are from Happy Hauntings. Luckily I was able to use up a lot of scraps.

The background paper has a lot going on, so I just added a little sparkle to the rose and left the rest alone. I also put the banner and rose on foam tape for dimension.

I left the card blank inside since it is for Mother's Day and her birthday, so it has plenty of room for me to write a note. But I might go back and add a sentiment.
