The Joys of Rolling Roses...

Have you noticed how paper flowers are popping up everywhere? I love the idea of being able to customize your embellishment to your card or layout. So I just had to try my hand at this new fad of rolling paper roses... Not sure how well I did but I am quit pleased with the card. I don't think I will give up my day job though... :-P

Today's finished product...



Recipe

Card Stock - Colorbok, Bazzill
Designer Paper - Simple Stories - 100 Days of Summer - Simple Pleasures (gingham rose)
Stamp - Our Daily Bread Designs - On Eagles' Wings
Scor-Pal - Scoring the white card stock on a diagonal every 1/2 inch
Dies - Spellbinders - Ovals Large; Beaded Ovals
Ink - Versamark
Embossing Powder - Ranger - Silver
Punches - Martha Stewart by EK Success - Frond, Snowflake
Pearls - Recollection

Rolled Rose Tip - I freehanded a spiral on the back of the gingham paper and cut. Once it is cut you roll it up paying particular care to line up the bottom. Once it is rolled you let it loosen and glue to the base (bottom of your spiral). Then fold your petals down if you like. Voila!

Challenges -

ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #61 - use gingham or plaid
Stampin' Sisters in Christ #90 - A card of encouragement with a touch of silver
