My sincere apologies to my design team members for just getting this posted to my blog. The days have just been slipping by so quickly and I lost track of time.

For the Just-A-Scrappin design team challenge this week we're making a project or card with circles. I stepped out the box a bit and made a rosette. This card was specifically made for my grandma. I tell the story in my video.

Materials used:
Card Base: Recollections white 65 lb weight cardstock. A2 size.
Pink layer: Coordinations cut at 5 1/4 x 4.
Green layer: DCWV (?) cut at 5 x 3 3/4.
Rosette: Paper from my stash. I used the Ribbons and Rosettes Cricut cartridge. I cut 4 pieces at 4 inches by 1 inch.
"You Did It": Don Juan
Enamel Dots: I bought these at the Anaheim Scrapbook Expo

Here's how I made it. Warning! I was a little chatty.
