Not Too Shabby!

I found this card on pinterest the other day, and having many, many cards to make, and being a little short on designing mojo, decided to try to CASE it.  I really love the light blue, black and cream colours and the vintage look.  And I struggled with it - mostly with the border trims for the Pool Party pieces.  I still don't have that technique down pat.  Help, anyone?  Anyway, this is what I came up with, using SU products.


Not sure if I was entirely successful, but I'm really loving making those rolled roses.  I think there's too much Very Vanilla around the edges, but I did try some paper piercing and double bow tying... ahem.  I think that would have gone easier if I had not aged the ribbon first.   Oh, well, it's done.  Now to try something a little more clean and simple.  I'll post that tomorrow.
