I made this for my Mom's birthday this month, she is currently redecorating her living room in these colors. I accidently came across this shade last week in JoAnn's. It is self-adhesive. You just remove the label, which doubles as your template. I traced it onto craft paper and once stamped, it adheres back to the shade. Had a little trouble getting it straight at first, that shade was really sticky!!! :( Had to work out the air bubbles like you would do after wallpapering. Did the same with the matching night light, just used mono-adhesive. Bought the matching beaded ribbon and night light at JoAnn's this week with 2 coupons. And to my surprise...the ENTIRE stock of lamps and shades were 50% off this week. So I made the entire set (brushed brass lamp, shade and night light) for....drum roll..............$18.00. Yipppie!!!!!

Well, I started staring at this shade and decided it needed a little bit more. So I stamped a few more roses in just more mustard and ruby red. And then added garden green to the already old olive leaves. I just couldnt leave well enough alone!!!! If I have time, I will upload the new photo.
