Peaceful Roses











Decided to play along in some new to me challenges:Freshly Made Sketches and Dynamic Duos
I'm hoping my colors are close enough to qualify. I began by embossing a panel with this gorgeous Cuttlebug folder.  The felt roses & leaves are by MFT. 
The strips are embossed with Penny Black's puzzle parts & the sentiment is from Penny Black's yuletide greetings stamped in PTI Simply Chartreuse. Pearls finish it off.

If you're an American, don't forget to fly your flag & remember the sacrifices of our Veterans.  Hope you have a great week.
