Woodware Roses

I have a card to share today that I made for my mum's birthday. As she was left partially blind by a stroke during covid, everything has to be on the large side, so this card is a big 8" square!

I've coloured with the flowers with copics and promarkers. The background paper is from Anna Marie Designs. I've used a burlap die and a Creative Expressions flower die. The sentiment is computer generated.
