Best Wishes Rosette Flowers

Hi Everyone.  

The rain has finally caught up with us in the North East.  Hope it's dry where you are. 

This card is for a new challenge Dynamic Duos and I better get my skates on because their first week closes today.  Here's the challenge -

You've only to use the two colours in your challenge apart from neutrals.  If you don't have these exact colours you can choose ones that are close to them. 

I love the two colours together but haven't had a chance till now to have a play at making a card.  So here's how I made it - 

I used Pool Party for my card base then added a Whisper White layer which was embossed with Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  Down one edge of the card I've embossed lines using my new fabby Scoring Tool

Also using the scoring tool I made two rosettes out of Sale-A-Bration Designer Paper.  I punched out circles for the middles in Lucky Limeade and Pool Party.  Added a Designer Brad to the largest rosette in Lucky Limeade and for the smaller I used a normal brad in Old Olive (this was my nearest colour).  

I punched out branches using the Bird Builder Punch and then used the little flower punch from Itty Bitty Shapes to make white blossom.  I snipped the flowers so the curled a little and then popped a Basic Rhinestone into each one. 

For my sentiment I stamped Best Wishes in Pool Party from Sincere Salutations and punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch.  I added some more bling under the sentiment actually to hide a little smudge from my stamping.  Ooops but a happy end result. 

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate your visit.  Take care. x
