Rosette birthday

Hello to all my friends and followers today, thank you so much for stopping by.
I've been having a quiet week so far as my little baby (who's nearly 20!!) went off Monday on his first holiday abroad. He's gone to Spain with his girlfriend and I just know they will have the best time-he's already posted me a picture of their room overlooking the pool! Makes me want to go off somewhere nice too though!!
Instead I've been busy at my craft table making a card for my husbands birthday. When I made my Dad's fathers day card hubby said he would've liked a card with a rosette on too so I decided I would make him one for his birthday. I wasn't sure of the colour if I'm honest but it'll have to do now as it's his birthday on Friday and there's no time to make a different one. It made me realise though that after 28 years being married I don't know his favourite colour-how bad is that?
I used the freebie stamps from Docrafts again and paper pieced the rosette with papers from The Glitter Pot. The newsprint paper came as the backing card for the stamps-waste not want not eh??
I punched some stars from black card and added some card candy to the centres. The sentiment is another from Netty's cards punched out to fit the middle of the rosette:

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Quirky Crafts #13 -rosettes
Creative Card Cottage #42 -spots/stripes
Glitter n Sparkle #142 -one for the boys
Shopping our Stash #207-for the boys
Cardz 4 Guys #76-use a die or punch
Allsorts #316 -use a stamp
Creative Inspirations #319 -favourite (punches, I've loved using punches from day one!)

So that's about all from me today, thank you so much for stopping by and for any comments you may wish to leave me.
Until next time.

  5. Now you've made me think - I don't know my husband's favourite colour either, or even whether he has one! He loves growing veg though so it's probably green. Anyway, whether the colour is his favourite or not, it's a lovely bold, stylish card and I'm sure he'll love it. Thanks for sharing it with us at Cardz 4 Guyz.
