Smell the Roses @ Creative Embellishments!

Hello, March 1st! Just a little closer to warmer weather, which I love!  My husband sent me this beautiful flower arrangement for Christmas 2017-he is always so sweet in many ways.  Anyway, when I saw the challenge @ (click and go->) CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS for March, I just had to use this photo-I LOVE roses and there were beautiful large white roses in this arrangement.  If you have some time, please join us!  You have ALL MONTH for a chance to win $50 in wonderful products!

***the "twist" is to use roses.***

***I cut into strips, the actual message on the card.
Creative Embellishments Products Used:  DISTRESSED GRID STENCILLOVE STENCIL:  I used the love stencil with brown chalk ink and then used the distressed grid stencil around it using the same ink.  Small LOVE border wordDECEMBER TAB:  I left both of these natural and applied a coat of glossy accents.  LONG STEM ROSE:  I used Tim Holtz distress paint in white and a Green Sharpie and then added a coat of glossy accents.
