My parents had the most beautiful rose garden while I was growing up, with gorgeous flowers of many varieties and colours. One special one I remember was the Blue Moon rose, it had such an unusual colour. My Mum, Barbara, is my biggest fan here on my blog and visits every day, she is having day surgery tomorrow and has some not so nice preparation to do today so probably isn’t feeling the best. Todays creation is just to let her know I’m thinking of her. This one’s for you Mum…My version of the Blue Moon rose:

The vase and roses were cut on the Silhouette Cameo from this SVG cuts file, I’ve added a pearl to the centre of each rose and a butterfly to one of the leaves for decoration

Mum loves Tilda too, so I’ve created a Magnolia card to match with one of my brand new Tildas:
