Die Cuttin' Divas Recipe Challenge

The challenge this week is a recipe.  The recipe calls for something made with Rosettes, Ribbons, and/or Rhinestones.  You can use 1, 2, or all 3 elements--your choice.

I made this card, using all three elements.  I didn't use the Cricut Rosette cartridge, but made my rosette the "original" way by scoring a 12" x 1-1/4" strip of paper at each quarter inch mark.  The purple scalloped circle is 2" cut with my EK Success punch.  The green scalloped circle is 1-1/2" cut with a Marvy punch.  Those rhinestones have been in my stash for a while; I think from Michael's dollar bins.  The green gems were actually part of the whole purple gem flower, but I cut them away to put in the corners of the card.  Used some white ribbon over the green patterned paper from Deja Views Cat's Life.

Did you see all the great projects at Die Cuttin' Divas?  Please be sure to go there and check out the projects made by the Design Team, AND our special Guest Designer this week, Cindy at Pink Lady's Paradise.  Her flower rosette card is terrific!  Go visit her blog and show her some love.

So come on and join in the fun.  Make those projects with either Rosettes, Ribbons, and Rhinestones! And link it back to Die Cuttin' Divas.  You can use 1, 2, or all 3 of the elements, it's your choice.  You'll have one week to enter your project--be sure to include a die cut and tell us where it's from.
