Rose card made using Rock Princess

Hello, friends!

I hope you liked yesterday's project that I made with Country Life! Today I have a card that I made using the Rock Princess cartridge. This cartridge has a couple of roses on it that caught my eye immediately.



I cut the rose out at 3 3/4". The sprayed it with glimmer mist to give it is little shimmer.



The paper is My Mind's Eye and the stamped sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.



Thank you so much for popping by today!
