"Everything's Coming Up Rosettes" & "Moxie Fab World"



I discovered this new (to me) blog The Friday Mashup Challenge # 33 and thought I'd give it a try. I haven't had the best of luck with the "rosettes" every scrapper seems to be making now a days so thought I'd try it again.

Then I discovered there is the Championing Award Medallions Challenge in the Moxie Fab World that I'd like to enter as well, so here goes. Check out this blog and enter your own project, plus see some wonderful inspiration. Good luck if you decide to participate!


I found some pretty black/white pattern paper in my stash, combined it with two pieces of card stock ( melon mambo and black ) both of which I scored on the diagonal using my Score-Pal. I like the combination of the embossed "dots" and the diagonal lines together for added texture. Adhered both to whisper white card stock that had been embossed using the dotted swiss embossing folder. Not sure if that's the proper name, but that's what it reminds me of, so that's what I call it.
Topped the rosette with a small circle of black cardstock and topped that with a bevy of rhinestones!


This time I was pleased with the results of the rosette, now of course I'm on a roll and will be making more of different sizes


Thanks for taking a look, I'd love to hear from you.

For your first rosette, you've done a fabulous job. I love that pop of red on your black and white colour scheme.
