first parch card for a while

I haven't made a parchy card for quite some time, I think I sickened myself doing it all the time. I have been having lots of fun with my new stamps and papers etc (as can be seen below lol) but I thought it was time to do some parching today as I have a card to make for an MSN friend who is 60 this month. I have wanted to do this pattern for a while so decided to make it at last :)

The backing paper is a burgandy rose print and originally I wasn't sure about it because you can't see the whitework so clearly as if it was backed by a plain dark card, but it has grown on me and I think it looks ok now. Each rose has a gold bead in the centre.
