simply stampin' challenge, week 10

Today is a very special day! Its my cousin Rachel's wedding day!! I am so excited! Anyhows, I probably can't express my excitement to its max as I'm actually writing this post a few weeks previous as I'm in the States at the present time. I will have a full report on everything when I return!! But one thing I can say, I cannot WAIT to see the dress! I'm sure Rach is going to look absolutely stunning!!! :D 

This Simply Stampin' Challenge is a sketch and I loved this week's sketch! 

Floral Rosette

Stamp Set: n/a
Cardstock: So Saffron, Certainly Celery
DSP: Rose Red, Pink Pirouette
Punches: Eyelet Border, Two Step Bird, Corner Rounder
Accessories: Daffodil Delight Button, Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon, Linen Thread
Extras: Dimensionals

I love this card!! And its so simple! I cut out and distressed a number of different sized DSP circles and then layered them up, it makes a really great quick rosette and all you need is paper and scissors! To finished off the middle with some linen thread and a button! I added a band of Rose Red DSP, a strip of Certainly Celery punched with the eyelet border punch and some ribbon. Finally I added some leaves from the two step bird punch in Certainly Celery and then rounded the top corner. It just helps mimic the rosette.
