Yellow Rose of Texas

I used some papers from Paper Temptress for this Sherrod Studio card.  The base is a single 5.5 x 4.25.  The white layer with the rose is a trifold using 4.25 x 11 inch Heavenly White Premium US CS folded into thirds (after the flower is stamped and cut).  I used a corner punch on the corners of the colored layer, Stardreams Malachite. 
So, when you slide off the decorative black ribbon and beaded stick pin, you can open the card to reveal the sentiment. 
Sherrod Studio's Friendship Blooms set has a lot of friendly quotes including the one I used here.  It reads:  "To the soul there is hardly anything more healing than friendship.  -- Thomas Moore." 

I stamped the large flower in white craft and embossed it using clear EP.  The leaves are also stamped and embossed on the malachite paper.  Then I watercolored the image and cut the right side before scoring the top and bottom crease.
