~NSD 2014 - Monochrome Rosette

For this NSD project, I combined two challenges into one card.   First Cricutaddicted posted a challenge to do a monochromatic project.  You can see her lovely butterfly card here.  As you can see, I used several shades of my favorite color ~ PURPLE!!!  The second challenge met with this project is to use a rosette.  Colleen posted this challenge and has some AWESOME party projects you can see here.   I welded 6 individual pieces of Rosette together (at 1" tall) so I only had one point to connect the ends (hot glue and I don't always get along!).  I also added a little strip of the pattern paper to the center of the rosette strip before connecting the ends.  I put a matching brad in the center of the rosette medallion.   This card was really simple, yet looks so elegant.  I used a flower embossing folder that sort of matches the pattern paper to emboss  strips on the outside and inside of the card.  The best part is that this birthday card was already earmarked before it was ever made!  So these challenges gave me just that push I needed.  I hope you will visit the tutorials on these blogs and try some of your own projects.  Thanks for stopping by!
