Tarnished Gold: Roses

 I started adding beads to the lace, and started forming a rose motif in silk ribbon embroidery.  I added a red seed bead in special places in the roses.  The more open looking larger bud is a new creation I made as I went.  It started out a lazy daisy to which I added ribbon stitches to the sides and one to the middle and then added loops at the base.
I used some thread to baste a sketch so I will have an idea how to fill in the rest of the motif.

Lovely rose! And I like the beads added to the lace too!
