Rip and Roll

It's something like rock n roll but you do it with your paper.  You MFT junkies know that it's this month's guest designer challenge. 
I'm not very good at rolled flowers so I wasn't going to play along this month.   Then a trip to the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens lit a small fire under me and I dug out the large rolled rose die and gave it a shot.
The gardens are amazing.  If you're interested I'm going to post a few photos after the deets and challenges.

don't forget the inside

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "Clearly Sentimental About Children"
Ink - Versa Magic "Spring Pansy"
paper - Stampin' Up "Orcid Opulence" cs; K and Co "Susan Winget" dp

  2. Wow, I think you nailed the flower thing! It's gorgeous and the trip to the botanical was the perfect inspiration. I wonder if there is ever a "make a seascape" challenge if my hubby would understand the inspirational necessity of a cruise! ;) LOL
