I had so much fun refining my Rosette technique using the new SU Simple Scoring Tool. I cut my Cherry Cobbler CS 1" x 12" and scored every 1/4" and then accordian folded the CS. I attached with Crystal Effects which worked great. Then punched out a 1 3/8" Wild Wasabi circle and attached to the rosette again with Crystal Effects. I tried diff. adhesives and CE worked by far the best. the circle got covered up by the ornament layer.
I had stamped onto Shimmery White CS with Black Stazon several of the bird images and colored with SU watercolor pencils and blender pen. I punched
one image out with my Ornament punch and cut just the bird and a few leaves with my papersnips from another colored image and adhered with mini glue dots to the punched Ornament image. All very quick as the images were already colored.
I got the idea to dry EB the background using my Snow Burst EB folder onto "Glossy White CS" from the very talented "leslierich". It gave a shiny and very detailed finish to the snowflakes. Loved the results. Will be doing more of that....thanks Leslie for the idea.
I used my new Hand-Penned Holidays sentiment for the 1st time. Wow.....gorgeous font don't you think?
Thanks again Holly for your Inspiration and thanks Trish for another awesome Queen For the Day Challenge :-)
Hope you enjoy this card as much as I did making it. Isn't stamping and sharing just sooooo much fun?!?

This is beautiful, Nancy! I love the bird on the ornament, and how you placed the rhinestone in the sentiment. One really needs to see the embossed glossy cardstock in person to appreciate the effect, but it does turn out great!
