Roses... It might be a cliché, but they sure are one of my favourites, no matter in what colour they come. Even if I have to buy them on my own :)
It has been a while since I made a rose-themed paper box featuring roses in different techniques. After it spend quite a while in my shelf, I decided to recycle it piece by piece. I've already used the cross-stitched rose and the decoupage rose of the box in card projects this summer, and managed to use the third now. It's a simple stitched card featuring stitchedroses, with very little embellishments. In fact, as the motif including the yellow frame hardly fits on the card, I had no space to add anything, exdcept of a couple of yellow pearls.
It has also been a while since I got myself a bouquet of fragrant yellow roses at the Ljubljana flower market. I even got a discount as the lady decided to temporarily close her market stand due to bad business in the middle of a heat-wave, and was trying get rid of the displayed flowers. Good thing about heat-waves :) 
On the other hand, the broght yellow/orange shades are a perfect starter for autumn, too.
