Rose Celebration

My aunt asked me to help her with a special 90th birthday card for a woman in her sorority.   I drew inspiration from the rose symbal of the sorority and from this week's Freshly Made Sketches card challenge.  As I love to create hand stitched cards I thought it would be fun to try stitching this design. If you look closely, you will see the glass beads that I have sewn on to the embossed paper.  I hope you like it.

Message inside the card:
Happy Birthday

The rose symbal from the sorority.

Bon, I'm so impressed with your card! The fact that you took an image and made it into a design is amazing :o) And I thought that those might've been french knots, but I like the glass bead idea even better. Great job on the sketch, too.
