A Card with Crochet roses for CWC

Welcome to this week's
use at least 3 flowers

I crochet my roses using DMC Coton Perle and a size 5 crochet hook.
I used Cricut Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge for the leaves- cut at 3/4".
And finished with Gloss Accents after inking with Walnut Distress Ink.
I first stamped my background using a inkadinkado stamp (no name- I'll call it script) and the stamp-a-ma-jig from EK to line up the stamp and stamp it several times since it was not wide enough to cover the size of my background.  I used antique linen distress ink for background.
I used a Inkadinkado jar stamp.  I drew and colored the stems myself (do not own such stamp) using Copic markers. The tag was punched using a Fiskars punch. The sentiment stamp is from Recollections. Finished with a little piece of brown/white baker's twine.

Thanks for Visiting!
