After I let the ribbon roses idea sit over the weekend, I got an idea how to get them attached. So, up in the morning and off to try it out.
What do you think? I used the card kit from pg. 183 of the catalog as inspiration for this card. After folding the ribbon roses, I prevented them from unraveling by stitching the ends. Pretty easy if you follow this hint: tie the knot in your thread end before you start folding your ribbon rose. Then I used the anywhere hole tool to create holes to stick the ribbon rose ends into the holes and secure the on back with tape (eek, yes I used tape!). Pop up the top layer with dimensionals and off you go!

And here is another version. Here I used the new Color Coach to come up with the color combination, which I would have never thought up on my own. This one is for So Shelli's monthly creative challenge.
