Rose Easel Card- MOJO 140

Hi there friends,
Yesterday, I was closing the book on LOST. Today I closed the book on another one of my fav TV shows---> 24. :( I don't think I can handle much more losing my favs. But I know they're gonna work on a 24 movie so I'm not as sad as I was saying aloha to LOST.
  When I got to my classroom this morning, these beautiful roses were waiting for me!
I luuuuuv roses! I'm a June baby which makes me luv them even more! BTW, my birthday is June 13th in case you're planning on hitting Tiffany & Co ;) My sweet, wonderful friend picked them from her garden & brought them for me- just because :) awwwww.

So I made her this thank you card:

It's an easel style (A2 size). I used the T!m Holtz Tattered Florals die (for the 1st time :) I tried to copy the real roses, but I just can't compete with nature!
I used this week's MOJO Monday fab Sketch #140:
Here are a few more peeks of the card:
No, this is not one you could mail- it's very dimensional, but since I'm hand delivering, it won't be a problem. I made a special envelobox to put it in. I also added gold Shimmerz paint to the petals. The flower tut can be found ---> HERE and the Easel card tut can be found ---> HERE.

Thanks so much for peeking today! Gonna grab something quick to munch on & it's off to bed for me!
Gotta Go!
