CAS Rosette card

The Less is More challenge this week is a sketch, such a simple design that I just kept the design in my head rather than drawing the sketch.  What a mistake that was..... I'd convinced myself that the diagonal line was corner to corner!  So, I've used a little artistic license and hope it still counts for the challenge.




The rosette is a Nellie Snellen folding die 'Flower 2', which I die cut twice to make the rosette.  The patterned paper is from a Dovecraft paper stack, pink with white stars, although they look more like dots in the photo.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

Hi Liz

What a lovely finished card .. .. I love that pretty rosette very much.

Many thanks for sharing your childhood memory on my blog .. .. it made me smile. At one of the wedding fayres I do there is always a wedding dress lady opposite me who has a lovely little girl who sometimes comes when her Mum is setting up her stand .. .. and then disappears with her Dad. The little girl does exactly as you used to and sees the final fittings. How magical!

I often wonder whether the Mum and her daughter dress up as bride and bridesmaid .. .. perhaps I will ask her next time we are together! LOL!!

Hope you are having a good week.

Love Jules xx
