Curt was tickled pink I mean red today when he saw that “roses” were needed. You see he is quite the gardener and has just recently developed the “black n white” long stem rose that is really rare. In fact it is so rare, no one has herd of it before. He has dubbed it the “Moo” Rose since it kind of resembles cow hide……go figure.
Instead of making a bouquet of them, which would be short lived, he decided he would give Sue an actual plant that would last a long time and produce many more roses if they follow the included instructions. The gift that just keeps giving!.....details….
To make this card I first dry embossed the long stemmed flowers and pot onto the cs. Then I drew Curt. Coloring of this was done with Bic markers. Cut it all out and set aside.
Printed out the rose template, added the black spots then made the spiraling roses. Printed out another regular looking rose and colored red since Sue likes red......and Curt likes extra cookies! hehe
The bg was made on a Gelli Plate using red acrylic paint and stamping rolled up cardboard which resembles a rose.
Put this altogether on a black card gluing Curt and potted flowers on front popping up the single rose. Then I glued on the b/w Moo roses. Done.
Well that wraps up another fun fun fun MMTPT. Little Cooper is coming over soon so I best get the house “toddler proofed” or else! Have a great day all…….TFL :0)

I hope Curt enters his long stem Mooo - roses in a flower show. He is sure to win something! Cute card Cathy!

What fun - moo roses! I wonder what they smell like, LOL. They will be such fun to have growing in Sue's rose garden. I love the gelli plate background - not sure whether I spotted that or the fun roses first!
