Pink Roses

Just sharing a top-folding TAG-CARD I started, during Linda's 90-Minute Scramble.
The theme was:  Paper-Piecing.
During the 90-minutes, I started a new design, twice, so, I was only able to complete the white tag.
After the scramble, I completed my design, and made a TAG-CARD, (my favorite to create).

Stamps:  (Hero Arts)-Tag, Two Birds (Images), Year Round Sentiments
Paper:  (Hero Arts)-Blush-Mixed Folded Cards; (PTI)-White
Inks:  Distress Inks
Die:  (PTI)-Loop De Loop
Other:  Pearls, Wink of Stella, Crochet Thread, Fabric Roses, Foam Tape

As I made this, I thought of my Sweet Mom.
Pink roses were her favorite.

Thanks for your visit.
