Christmas Rose

Happy Halloween everyone! This post is not Halloween related, though. :-)

I think this card will definitely be for my mother this Christmas. She looooooves flowers, so this will be perfect for her! A little while ago, I saw a gorgeous rose made from coffee filters on the Stamp TV web site (yes, there's a tutorial!), and I was entranced. I had to have that punch so I could make my own! Scrappily Ever After was out of stock on them for a long time, but they finally got it last week, AND they were on sale! I got the punch yesterday, and this is my first attempt at the rose. I colored it will Hot Cinnamon and Honey Amber Twinkling H2O's.
Notice the lovely punched bottom border? One of Martha Stewart's new deep edger punches. There are a ton of new ones out, so be sure to check out your local Michael's. Hold on to your wallet! You've been warned!
Anyway, thanks for stopping and I hope everyone has a safe and boo-tiful Halloween!
