Handmade Roses

Hi All
Well the weather really has turned colder.  I have even had to put my heating on, much to my husband's disgust, I am sure he just wants me to put more and more layers of clothing on to keep warm.  But how can you craft with lots of layers on.
Anyway, been busy making my own paper roses for embellishments.  I used them to make a card for a friend's 40th birthday.
I printed the image and backing papers off a CD (cupcake crafting).  Rather than print them in colour I printed them in black and white.  I then matted and layered onto black mirror card and I also inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress inks.
I then made the paper roses using various papers I had in my stash.  Added a ribbon, sentiment and some small punched flowers in the top corner.
Here is a close up image of the roses.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Polka Doodles Week 40 challenge - handmade flowers
One Stop Craft Challenge week 152- anything goes

Thanks for looking
