Hi everyone - is it just me, or are the days just flying by?  Just managed to get this one finished in time for week 2 of the Bah! Humbug! Challenge - well I just had to join in this week, as I won the Challenge prize last week - a beautiful set of Elusive Images Christmas stamps!  As this week's theme is to use New or Nearly New Stash,  I decided to use one of the sentiments from my new prize.  The Nestie Label die has only been used once before and the Grunge Paper Rose is totally new to me, in fact it's my first attempt at making one of these - great fun to do.  It's coloured with Shimmerz and a sprinkling of Glamour Dust.
Other items used - CB ornate corner die, Woodware leaf punch. The  paper is from an old Bo Bunny collection - this was my very last piece - absolutely loved it, sob! (Get a grip Sylvia ...).

Thank you for looking - Hugs, Sylvia xxxx
PS: As I have been asked how I made the Grunge Paper Rose, I am including a link to the Tim Holtz TutorialHERE . Of course, Tim's are absolutely stunning!!

Oh WOW Sylvia-Ann! This is a Christmas Cracker!
You have made a beautiful card with your prize - just love the colour. Your fabby shimmery grunge rose is the perfect embellishment to the lovely organza ribbon and I can appreciate why you would want to cry at having no more of that super paper left.

I too can feel for you if that is the last piece of that paper - it's gorgeous. Love everything about this card - it's just scrummy. The sentiment works brilliant in the nestie.
Glad you liked the stamps and I hope you'll find time to joing in often.

Thanks so much for the tutorial and for stopping by today. Your rose is much prettier than the ones in the tutorial (don't tell Tim I said that)! Sure looks like a lot of work to me but I'll give it a try soon.
