A Rose is a Rose. . .

I believe this is a design from an old Just Cross Stitch magazine.  I know it's by Gail Bussi.   I love the pink lace I used around the edges, I'll tell you about it in a minute.

There were a few specialty stitches included.

I used an antique button towards the bottom and finished it off with a ribbon bow.

The lace is Wright's flexi-lace Hem Facing and I found it in these three antique looking shades the last time I went to Joann's and it is really inexpensive.  For the hanger at the top, I sewed on an old necklace that I don't wear any more.  Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog again!
