A Walk In The Garden: The English Rose

August 5, 2019

Good morning everyone!

Here is the beginning of August already –– is it warm enough for you? Thank goodness there are Gulf breezes here in Florida!

Today I am featuring the English Rose. My aunt had an entire garden of Peace Roses I would see just about every day when I’d walk to her home to visit her as a child… and, play Canasta. So, I tried to “go back“ and create her roses. I made a small bud to go along with the main Rose. 

Baby’s breath, Berry branch with leaves, and ribbon with some gold threads were used to fill in my project. 

It is a 6” X 6” inch card with decorative paper as a layer for the background. Suzanne Cannon’s “ Bliss“ was used to describe these lovely flowers. I tried to keep it simple – to showcase the rose! Of course, there is a ladybug!

If you would like to purchase any of the products I’ve used, just click on them below and you will be directed to the Elizabeth Craft Designs website to complete your order. 

Enjoy, and keep gardening!

See you next month,

    Thank you for such kind words for my project and remembering such a wonderful childhood!!! We used to play Canasta for hours, and now I cannot even remember how to begin the game…that’s old age… I guess!
