PPA37 - 3D Paper Rose

Well I really got excited to try out the 3D paper rose I saw in several blogs. I got the directions from Julie Williams' blog and I think my first attempt came out quite nice... if I do say so myself. I especially like the plum color which doesn't really show in the photo but you should get a good idea. I achieved the look starting with a light lavender CS and inked first with Lavender Lace and then with Rich Razzleberry. Then followed the directions to achieve the 3D rose. The only down side  to this card is; it doesn't come out mailer friendly because of the bulk, but oh so pretty! Perhaps this card would be best 'hand-delivered' as well as 'hand-made', but it certainly will be appreciated!
The scallop circle, leaves and butterflies are all from the Sizzix die cuts, with a strip of Razzleberry DSP to give some depth. I think it will be a hit at a future card class. What do YOU think?
Here are few more cards that will be used for the next class. The cute little lion was CASED from Linda Aarhus, one of my favorite mentors, and the plum card is a modified CASE from Andrea Walford. I think the girls will be having some fun with these choices. 

This cute little lion says "WILD about YOU!" on the inside, but I forgot to take a photo of it.
It would be great childs birthday or little one's special  occassion.    
  This dark plum birthday card is self explanitory... Huummmm ya think I have plum thing going here???

Love your 3-d Rose card and isn't Razzleberry the absolutely PERFECT color for a rose! I liked the contrast of the 2 different textures as well as the color contrast with the butterflies. Great job.

The lion card is absolutely adorable, he looks like he's escaping from a cage! What little one wouldn't love to receive this card.

I think you're right, you're "plum" crazy (only kidding-it's a great color choice).
Your card class is bound to be a hit!
