Cinema Saturday #59 "Roman Holiday" - Christmas Roses

I didn't realize as I made this for my workshop- that it also fit the Cinema Saturday #58 challenge movie - "Roman Holiday" - make something will pearls! I think the rose image, 'royal' colors and classy hat pin fit the bill for a princess, don't you?

I adore the floral images in SU!'s set "Fifth Avenue Floral"! They are just so beautiful, whether you color them with shading techniques or just leave them as is like in this sample. This is the first of four designs that we are making at a totally hands on (THO) workshop today. (ALL my workshops are THO - so call me to book yours!) This is one of the Christmas designs, though I chose a sentiment from the "Heard from the Heart" set so I could use this is a card for my parents whose anniversary is a few days after Christmas. This is also the first time I have tried my hand at using the hat pin embellishments that are part of the "Pretties Kit" (Awesome kit! Dyeable white flowers in several sizes, full and half pearl sin white and ivory, hat pins and clear plastic crystal-cut beads...)
