Better Late Than Never

It is school holidays here in Australia, so craft time is a little difficult to find at the moment. I had all great intentions to participate in the Moxie Fab World's Challenge - Winter Garden combined with the Colour Challenge at Diva Coffee Break Designs - Black White & Grey, but what do you know, by the time I finished my cards, they both have set new challenges! So, I thought I would share my entry with you anyway! lol!
When I thought about what a winter garden means to me, I remembered our beautiful white roses in our old house and how pretty they used to look first think in the morning with little dew drops on their petals, and I thought they going grey colour would nicely depict our dreary Melbourne mornings to a tee! Pretty deep huh! lol! Its pretty hard to tell, but this card is actually much nicer IRL, I have embossed the back card stock with a gorgeous leafy folder (thanks Phil) Anyway, here is a close up of the rose:
Thanks for looking :)

Love it. I am sure this card looks so much more beautiful in real life. They always do. Thanks for sharing. You have been doing such amazing work so sorry I haven't been past in a while.

Great details! I wish I could see the texture on the black piece. Thanks for joining the Divas for our challenge!
