3D Roses with paper embroidery

Hi everyone. I seemed to have picked up a sore throat. The Lord Mayor's Gala Concert was today and there were about 38 from our choir that sang. We were first on and sang a fanfare and 2 Christmas Carols and another Christmas song - I managed well until the last one and felt my voice crack so luckily I wasn't singing too loud and the other voices covered it up and it only lasted a few seconds. Just long enough for me to feel bad though! Nobody else noticed not even the girl standing next to me. One of my friends and I asked if we could go upstairs and sit in on the rest of the concert and they said okay, so we got to see it for free. I had a very late lunch!
I took the bus home from town, a very rare thing for me and was surprised at how much I had to pay for a 10 minute bus ride.
Out again for another rehearsal tonight and we have a charity performance at a hospice tomorrow. They have it every year to remember all the patients that have passed away there. Relatives and friends of the patients attend. They have a ceremony out of the front of the hospital where they light up one of the big trees and a soloist sings. Very moving. They have the police there and they close off the road for a short time. My friend and I are also singing at our Wednesday Craft breakup concert too tommorrow morning. I hope the voice is up to it as we are each singing a verse in one song and unison in the other.
Well onto today's card.
Basecard is red card from stash and the topper is white card and I have stitched a swirly pattern on it and added a 3D roses topper piece that I put together a while back and hadn't used.
I am entering this into Make It Monday Challenge #66 - Anything Goes
