A rose collection for myself for Mother's Day

I decided to stitch a rose collection this year for myself for Mother's day inspired by the very pretty roses I got from my brother on Mother's day. I love the rose designs from Keslyn's Alissa's pillow and here are what I come up with:

I used Jobelan 28 ct Antique Ivory, Covered button set to create the center button, and added seed beads. I modifed the chart to create the biscornu. You can find all these items on my web site:

Here are pictures of the roses I got from my brother on Mother's day:
