You have Rose Scale, Aulacaspis rosae. According to Compton: “This species infests the stems of roses, blackberry, raspberry, dewberry, and some other plants. The infested stems often become densely coated with the scales. The scale of the female is circular, snowy white, with the exuviae light yellow and upon one side.” Your photo shows a solitary female. Get rid of her before she reproduces and infests your bushes.
