I didn't mess around with this challenge! LOL!
Well I created it using the
GRUNGE ROSE technique
I used "Flower Combo" file
I used the "Mum Flower"
I followed this video tutorial to create the grunge flower
I used the polished stone technique to color the flower
Heat embossed parts of the flower with copper embossing powder
Used my Scor-Pal to create the grid effect to the background panel

The pretty white roses were store bought
You can find them at Little C's
