My Aunt’s Trellis…

How many summers did I sit in the swing on my Aunt’s front porch and enjoy the beauty and smell of her climbing roses.  She’s gone now but I have some of her flowers planted in my yard and I always think of her when they bloom.  She would love today’s card of roses climbing a trellis…


Can’t you just smell these roses?  This Stippled Blossom set is gorgeous.  Creating beautiful impressions every time.  We played with this stamp set in classes earlier this month and I loved the reaction as each person created their first rose.  Want to give this card a try?  Here are the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…
