Paper Rosette

Hey there! You know how much I love finding a fun challenge. The Friday Mashup is one that I've been spying for a while, but have never gotten around to doing... I'm finally playing along with the Everything's Coming Up Rosettes Challenge! Oh how fun!

It's an exciting day because I also pulled out my Simply Scored for the first time to create this rosette (I'm not sure I love the name, but I do love the style!) I've made them before (I called them acordian flowers - Hee!) but it sure was labor intensive! The Simply Scored is a fantabulous tool! :)

Here are the DEEts:

I started with a Baja Breeze card and added a piece of card stock of the same color for a little textured piece. Not sure if you can see it well in the photo, but I scored a grid on a piece of Baja Breeze and added it under my ribbon strip. Then I took some book print, stamped with the sentiment from PTI's Think Big Favorites, and matted it with some Not Quite Navy card stock. I added a strip of Not Quite Navy Striped Grosgrain ribbon and my paper rosette, made with some Pocket Full of Posies DSP and embellished with a simple Not Quite Navy button tied up with Linen Thread.


  1. Hi Nina, Welcome to the Friday Mashup! So glad you decided to play along with us.

    Great take on the sketch, I like the scoring on the background to take the place of the back piece of DSP.

  8. Nina this is gorgeous.. I love what you did with the scoring behind the ribbon area.. it's just subtle enough to really add charm. The monochromatic colors are so soft and pretty. I'm glad you joined us the week at the Friday Mashup it's always great to see new players.
