Weathered Rose Card

Howdy.  I am in the kitchen, getting a few dishes together for our Nurse's Week Luncheon tomorrow. But, that didn't stop me from crafting one more card.  I have had a grand time playing along with the latest sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch, so I decided to make one more card {smile}.

and here is my latest card:

and a different view:

Recipe:  The card base is soft suede card stock, by Stampin' Up!.  I love this golden kraft color.  {smile}  The matt paper is from a local shop, and I don't know who makes it, or the color/pattern name.  Sorry.  I just love the aqua color with gold pattern.  Very pretty.   
The blossom pattern paper is from Authentique, the Grace collection.  I believe that it is the last remaining scrap piece I have on hand.  I used my sewing machine to do a double border, to add to the homespun feeling.
I used another Anna Griffin chalkboard sentiment tag for my sentiment.  I had a scrap piece of this beautiful orange polka dot pattern paper, that matched beautifully with the Grace pattern paper.  I adhered it to a scrap piece of soft suede card stock, with foam tape.  
I did wrap a length of Aqua Mist polka dot satin ribbon around the orange polka dot pattern paper and tied it in a simple bow.
Finally, I added a trio of gold sequins.  Viola!  Super simple for me, and pretty!  
Thank you for stopping by, I need to get back into the kitchen as my hand-crafted Lemon Marshmallows are ready to be cut and packaged.  {smile}  Yeah, I make my own marshmallows.  It's not hard, just time consuming.  The beginning part takes about 25-30 minutes.  Then you turn them out into a pan to 'set up' and this part takes 2hrs.  And finally, it takes about another 30 minutes to cut and toss them. {smile}
