Paper Roses

This is my CASE of Queen Pat's roses card. It is also for the CAS challenge for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge. It looks simple, but the fact that I made each and every rose didn't make the card simple at all. It took me about 2 hrs to make the roses. I wish I had the leaf punch like my friend Pat, but I don't. It is on my wish list, but with my washing machine breaking this last week, a paper punch isn't high on the list of needs for my family. I used instead my snowflake punch. Now I know there are a lot worse things than having a broken washing machine. My sister found out today that her mother in law has breast cancer. So all my stamping sisters, I'm asking if you will pray with me for healing, and for peace for Lisa. I hope that this roses card will lift her spirits and encourage her.


  1. Sorry that you still can't get your cards into the galleries, MariLynn. These stunning roses are real beauties, and will carry a message of love and care to your sister's MIL. And as always you've improvised perfectly without the leaf punch.

  2. This is stunningly gorgeous. What a beautiful those fantastic roses. Well done, my friend.

  3. OH my this is incredible!! MY jaw is on the floor. I am so into these colors lately. Thanks for sharing this one with us at SSCC.

  4. Hello Marilynn,
    As always your flowers are stunning! and this is a stunning card.

    P.S. about your washing machine, what kind of problem did it have? My husband fix a few washing machines. May be we can point you in the directions.
