Roses are Red

I love photographing my flowers! 
This one was taken on 5-16-16 of several mini red roses, all in full bloom,
that grow in front of my 2 foot tall Virgin Mary statue. 
She is made of white resin and is such a beautiful addition to the front yard garden.  
She is surrounded by pink & yellow gladiolas behind her and pink & red miniature roses in front of her.
 I felt this photo deserved a simple, but dramatic layout.
Quite a striking contrast between the pure white and beautiful red.
The paper is by The Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby that I bought quite a long time ago when I was scrapping my daughter's wedding album.  It was perfect for this photo!

Wild Orchid Crafts beautiful mulberry roses are truly divine! 
The Tattered Lace dies "Ornate Leaves" has a leafy rose stem die that is just gorgeous
In the close up below, check out the fabulous embossed texture in the paper!

Well, that's it for now.  Your visit is much appreciated!  Have a great day, Lisa : )
