The box is beautiful and the rose really finishes it off to make it special. Roses were my grandmothers favorite flower - her name was Rosemary.

Kray said...

We can never have enough roses, like Mitch1066 says, they are timeless!!!

What a wonderful idea! I am already thinking of a box I can "scraplift" this for!
