This is my take on the Challenge:

A close up of the foliage:

For My Letters I used
S= Sponging, P= Pearls, R=Ribbon, I=Ink, N=Nesties, G=Green, 
The rose I created is with a Blossom Nestie, &  some of the DSP,  and I added a few tiny buds by punching out little circles, and using the end of a crochet hook, and a soft piece of sponge, I shaped them by pushing them down in the middle, and glued them on to the lace. 

ODBD Stamps used:  Scripture Coll. 9
Paper: Rose Red,  Vanilla, DSP Romantique,
Ink:Black Memento,
Accessories: Vanilla Ribbon, Pearls, MS Leaf Punch, Nesties ( 3 of them) Cherry Lynn Flourish Die, Lace, EF, Foliage, Dimentionals,  Liquid Glue, & Love

Jan, this is just gorgeous! Those roses are like porcelain, they are so beautiful!! Love the detail on the rest of the card and of course the scripture. . .I will have to confess that your rose is detracting me from loving the Lord with ALL of my heart, my soul and my mind! :D Hugs and blessings!
