TSTR Week #23 - The Delicate Cottage Rose

Welcome to The Shabby Tea Room's week #23 challenge!  My name is Lisa and I'll be your hostess so sit down, grab a cup of tea and feast your eyes on this lovely photograph!
This week's challenge is titled "The Delicate Cottage Rose" and is inspired by this lovely photograph decorated in true rose themed Laura Ashley style!  I came across this photo at Country and I fell in love!  The challenge this week is to use roses in your project and I did just that.  The dress image on my card is from Squigglefly who is our sponsor this week in The Tea Room. I printed out the darling little prom dress onto a rose patterned paper and cut it out.  I added some Prima flowers to Debbie's vintage seam binding and printed the sentiment out on my computer. 

Thanks to for supplying the design team with some adorable images!
