Shabby Rose Card and tutorial

Hey everyone! Today I created a card for the Authentique Paper challenge. Here is a photo of the sketch for the card.

I decided that I wanted to use my Blissful stack again! I just love the yellows right now, I think it is because we are aproaching Spring so fast! I have a small photo tutorial for you all. I wanted to create a shabby rose for this card so I cut out four 2.5" circles on my 6x6 paper using the basic shapes from SCAL!

First I distressed the edges of my paper using my Tim Holtz Paper Distress.

Next I began tearing in a spiral until I reached the end of the paper.

I inked the edges with pink ink on the torn spiral.

Start rolling the spiral from the center tightly, pinch slightly when all is wound together. Release the spiral and glue the outer end down to create your rose and hold it's shape.

Here is the card I created. I used Shabby Chic Stamp Set from Shabby Chic Stamp Co., burlap ribbon, pink pleated ribbon, green grossgrain ribbon, paper from DCWV Coral Couture Cardstock Stack, Authentique Paper Blissfull paper, and Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad.

I enjoyed creating this card and love working with all of these products!
