Embellish Rosettes Color Trend Challenge

My card for the current challenge at Embellish blog - Rosettes Color Trend Challenge.  It is first time I tried to make these rolled flowers.  I die cut the scallops from pink, blue and white felt, cut with pinking shear and rolled them out. It was fun.  The white felt flower looks yellow on this picture.

The sentiment is the PTI script sentiment stamped in Hero Arts latte chalk ink.  I think it was the third time within last week I used the same sentiment.  Even my husband recognised it.  Definitely need to use a different stamp for my next card.

I am also entering this card to the Lily Pad flower challenge and  Moxie Fab World DIY embellishment challenge.

A quick post  sharing a card for the current Tuesday Trigger challenge at Moxie Fab World.

Amuse Damask stamped with VersaMark and applied the perfect pearl to mimic the pattern on the rug.  I wanted to highlight the flowers as the center piece of my card.  I accented my card with a pink border reflect the arrangement of the throw in accentuating the soft pink colors of the flowers.
