Authentique Paper January Challenge - English Rose
I found a new scrapbook store in my area today. I keep seeing these fantastic dies by Memory Box and wanted to get my hands on some. The store I found was listed on MB's web site. They didn't have any of the dies I was looking for - but Wow! what a collection of scrapbook papers!! You might already be familiar with Authentique but for me it was an eye opener. And let me tell you - it was love at first site!! Naturally I had to check out their site to see what else I've been missing from them and while I was browsing I found they have a blog challenge every month so of course I'm in!
I started with the Uncommon Collection which is so romantic looking that I had to top it off with a gorgeous rose from Serendipity. I added lots of crochet lace and a silver locket button just under the seam binding bow.
