Peaches and Green

I have been caught out twice today in pesky April Showers! lol :) So I am sitting quite soggy at my dads today and thought I would share this card I made for the Lili of the Valley Challenge.  This week the theme is Peach and Green - class! 

I used K&Co papers (peach dots) and some peach Kanban card.  I made the roses from my new Marianne Creatables 'english rose' dies, and it took a wee bit of practise, but I'm quite pleased with them.  I distressed and sanded the edges of the papers (including the roses) and hand stitched the papers round the edge.

I am entering this card in the following competitions:
