A Rose is a Rose . . .

Good Day Bloggers!
The new challenge at Classy Cards n Such is to use one of the Susan Tierney Cockburn flower dies.  Since I have a couple of these dies I was anxious to create and play along.  I have used her ROSE #658411 die set and her flower making kit.

This is not a card ... it's actually a box I made to house my baby shower gift seen HERE.   The pink rose is for a baby girl and the purple/butterflies are to match the room decor.
The large flourish in the background looks black but it's not ... it's a deep purple.
My camera really doesn't like purple ... most times wants to change it to blue!  LOL!
Here's a close up of my homemade flower ... I'm getting better at making them.

A few challenges:
Sunflowerfields Designs March Challenge - Birthday and/or Flowers (I went with flowers.)
The Doodle Garden Digistamps Challenge #1 - Anything Goes
My Creative Moments: Word Play Saturday - Swirls
Cuttin and Stampin Challenge - Butterflies are Buzzing
Fan-Tastic Tuesday Challenge #25- Anything Goes/Must be Square
Crafty My Life - Anything But a Card
The Cheerful Stamp Pad - Anything Goes
Crafting From the Heart - Anything Goes/Use Dies or Punches
Eureka Stamps #79 - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you'll come join in this challenge fun!
I can't wait to be inspired by the flower making of the participants ... I can use all the help I can get!  LOL!
Till next time!
