Summer has already arrived here in Texas and the roses are in full bloom. They are beautiful!! All the little animals are out and about, running and playing. There was a rabbit in my yard one morning, and it got my creative mojo working. This SU stamp was perfect. The next big job was finding the right paper. Found it!!!! This beautiful paper is CTMH. The mulberry roses were just what was needed to finish it. The image was painted with Copics and then the stamped imaged was heat embossed.
The inside looked a little plain so stitching was added to bring out the roses on the paper. The background of the corners and image were painted with celery and lilac shimmerz.

Thank you for looking and please leave a comment and let me know what you think.
