Bed of Roses

Evening Folks
Well the weekend has flown by far too quickly.
Yesterday was spent doing lots of boring household chores.  But my Mum and I did manage a visit to our local craft shop.  Went out last night with some friends to see a band at our local pub.  Had a really good night but feeling tired now as it was a bit of a late night.
I have managed to get some crafty time in today.  Most of it is DT work so can't reveal just yet.  I did however get this card made.  This will be for my Mother-In-Law's birthday in November.  She doesn't look at my blog so no fear of her seeing it.

This is a stepper easel card.  I have had the card blanks for ages.  I bought them at a craft show but I really can't remember which one and who I got them from.
The rose paper used is from Prima (Botanical Collection) and was a free paper pack I got with a craft magazine.  I matted this onto peach coloured coredinations.  The rose image was another freebie with a magazine.  I matted the image onto a die cut shape from the same peach coredinations.  I added a strip of lace along the bottom of the stepper.  This lace is gorgeous and if you look closely I threaded some ribbon through the lace.
The stopper was created using the same peach coredinations and rose paper.  I added a large sentiment that was also free with a magazine.
I then just went crazy with embellishments.  I did add some stickles to the roses and glitter to the butterflies for some added sparkle.
Here is another view:
