Double challenge -Waltzingmouse meets AMuse

Hi everyone!  I have another double challenge card to share today.  This card followed this week's Waltzingmouse sketch challenge (it was a circle, can't pass that right?) and the new AMuse challenge blog challenge which was to create your own embellishment.
The stamp set is WMS Say it Loud and to make the embellishment, I used Shell Satin ribbon and twisted and wound them around a Gluber glue dot. I then took a bit of Fern satin for the leaves and glued a 20mm open rose on top. The ribbons, cardstock and pattern paper are from AMuse.  I am new to AMuse, the cardstock and pattern papers are different than I am used to, it is white on the reverse side.  That is kinda cool, when you use it for card bases, you won't have to line the inside with white cardstock!  Also, it is a bit thinner, so when you emboss it you will need to use a shim.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Stamps - Say It Loud (Waltzingmouse)
