ok so here is my  first sneaky peep  using one of the  six new Swalk stamps..... isn't she sweet...... i must say im sorry.........in my excitement on trying the new stamps and the pens i totally forgot to make a note of the colours i used  not a good idea is it  silly me ......
i do hope you will join in on the hop im sure there are going to be some fantastic card on show

THE ROSETTE
to make the rosette of this size i  cut a piece of backing paper into 3 ( portrait) joined them together to make a long strip...then scored at 1/4" intervals  joined ends  to make into a circle went round in valley and mountain folds   (this can be done while flat) press down in center it pops out into a fan shaped ring   with wet clue stick this onto  a circle of card hold it down till glue takes hold  .......then decorate  with what ever you choose for topper ..........you can make them any size you like

thank you for popping by today
hugs linda xxxx
