Rosette flower for Mother's Day #2

Good Morning!

I made another rosette flower for my Mother In Law for Mother's Day.

I used a 1 x 12 inch strip of green and white paper scoring it every 1/2 inch.
I hot glued a 1 inch circle to the top and bottom to hold it together. (See previous post for more detail on how to make these)

I took a pink button and tied on bow of pink twine.

I hot glued that to the top of the flower. I then took some organdy ribbon and created three loops and attached it to the back. (I stapled the loops together since no one will see the backside.) I then took 3 pieces of different colored ribbon, folded them over and attached them to the backside also.
I used the Florals Embellished cartridge (page 58) and cut 4 "leaves" @ 2.25 in blue, 2.0 in pink, 1.75 in green and 1.5 in white. I cut 1 piece of patterned paper 4 x 5.25 and 1 piece of solid blue paper at just under 4.24 x 5.5. I attached it all to A2 size pink card stock.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
