Creamy Roses

Today's Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers takes us to the website of Superfine Bakery - I chose a cake covered in creamy swirls for my inspiration.
I cut a number of roses from felt with My Favorite Things Rolled Rose Die-namics and used snips from Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish die.  I prefer using felt rather than paper making flowers like these as it can be squished without harm! 
I dry embossed a small bit on the bottom of the panel and a large bit at the top, leaving a smooth strip for stamping the seniment - this works well with a Cuttlebug, simply turning the folder sideways, especially if you're using a panel on top of a card base.  I usually tape the folder onto the panel from the back so that it doesn't slide around and the end result is straight!
I then stitched the edges and popped it up on the card base.
Dipped into my jar of vintage buttons once more to finish off the bow made with gold cord.
Supplies include:
MFT Rolled Rose Die-namics
Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish Die
Waltzingmouse Say It With Style
Craft Concepts Budding Vine embossing folder
Gold cord
Vintage button
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Sewing machine
