Roses on the Wall

First of all, sorry for the late post.  My DH had a day off and I have a hard time creating when he's here so I spent the day cleaning up my craft office and organizing my paper..lots of paper!  I had to make room for some new papers so will putting some 6 x 6 coordinating packs on the For Sale page soon. 
Now for my card.  This is for Sketch Challenge267 on SCS.  I picked up a little sheet of rose images several years ago at Big Lots.  Yes, she said, shamefully, several YEARS ago!!  I think this looks like pictures hanging on the wall or at least that's what I was going for. LOL!

I loved them but just hadn't had the inspiration to use them...until last night (after you know who went to sleep).  I cut them apart, covered them with embossing liquid and let them dry overnight.  The button and stitches were printed on the paper.  I added some interest and texture by using a real button sewn with twine then antiqued with some PTI Chai ink.  I sewed the stitches on the bottom panel with embroidery floss.  The light panel is SU Confetti Cream antiqued with the same PTI ink.  I "hung" my painting on grosgrain ribbon.  What do you think?

Paper - Bazzill Texture, SU Black, Confetti Cream
Ink - PTI Chai, SU black marker
Accessories - Plaid antique glass embossing liquid, grosgrain ribbon, die cuts, foam tape, button, twine, embroidery floss

Now for the ribbon winner!
