A Rose by Any other Name

Morning we have a new challenge at 613 Avenue Create which is ATG/Use a Rose and we are sponsored by The Stamping Boutique,Eureka Stamps and Melonheadz-I was chosen to use ATG and own image but as a have a beautiful Rose and sentiment stamp set and not been used for a good couple of decided to use the twist too.Cardstock from Papermill Direct,I sprayed the background with Brushoes overstamped with a rose,the image is stamped-rose and leaves decoupaged,coloured with Brushoes used as watercolours,bow die/pearls and fibres from stash-everthing was on silicone for height.Today is the Christening of our little Grandson Noah William so hope the day stays fine.
