Home Made Embellishments

Our challenge to you this week at Phindy's Place is HOME MADE EMBELLISHMENTS. I've often made my own flowers so I wanted to do something them a little differently this time. I have had my eye on these rosettes and decided to give them a try.  When I got started, I realized just how easy it was so I expect I will be making more.

Phindy generously offers a couple of prizes - a $5 gift certificate to her store to a random winner and the winner of Card of the Week as chosen by the Design Team will also receive a $5 gift certificate along with a chance to be a Guest Designer. You don't have to use a Phindy image to enter but if you do, you can enter twice so I hope you will pop over to her store and pick a stamp or two that you can create with.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
