Make My Monday - Mid Week Motivation

Well it feels as though Christmas was months ago...well back into the swing of things; such as work lol:).  Make My Monday's weekly challenge  is continuing with Fliss' nature theme:-

and I have this week had the pleasure of doing the mid-week motivation (due to certain circumstances occurring at weekend) so pop along to Make My Monday  to see my very short tutorial on how to make rosette flowers (opted for this as Fliss likes DIY crafting).  Please forgive the quality of the photographs as I go to work in the dark and come home in the dark and the artifical light in my big old house is not great!

My card is a 6" square and I have used an old Penny Black stamp, which I coloured with water colour pencils.  The background has been created using distress inks and a Crafters Workshop stencil.  The border at the bottom is a Cuttlebug embossing border which I have coloured with distress inks.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Heart Song Inspirations - Use a border punch
I used an EK success border punch to make my rosette flower

Paper Creations Ink - Use a Punch/Die Cut
Border punch and scallop punches used
