Lots of roses

Hello lovely people,

I hope you are all enjoying a lovely Easter weekend, maybe with a little chocolate treat from the Easter bunny?!

We have a new 'Use any image' challenge starting over on The Ribbon Girl blog, so you can enter with any type of project as long as you include an image.
There are loads of fab prizes up for grabs too :-)

I've used the recently re-launched House of Roses paper pad from Lemoncraft and it is even better this time round as you get more different designs and the tone is much pinker, which of course I love!

It seems like ages since I used a Magnolia image and it seemed appropriate given that the papers are House of Roses to use a Tilda with a big rose!

I have coloured her with Inktense watercolour pencils.

Just in case the papers and image weren't quite enough, I added paper roses too!

I was going to add some little fishtails in the top left corner but decided to leave it plain for now so I could add a name instead if I wish.
