Milkshake Anyone

This image reminds me of the 50's & 60's diners and the delicious milkshakes they made.  I love this image and the paper I used, I hope, gives it that 50's look.

Really didn't know what to add to this card but I was checking out rosette flower tutorials on youtube and love how this one is created.  Of course, being my first attempt making these flowers, it's not as perfect as I would like it to be, but with a punched out circle (about 3/4 or 1 inch) and a button it hid the imperfections.  And next time I create the rosette flowers, I will use regular card stock - not the thick kind.  

I used the lattice looking card stock from Colorbok  and punched scallopes across the shaped mat and inserted brass brads in each scallop.   The card base is from svgcuttingfiles (check it out, may be still a free file from them but I got the file when I was on her Design Team awhile back) .  The cut file includes at least 4 card bases to chose from.  

Thank you for stopping by and check out the Design Team's inspirational work at http://thestampingchef.wordpress.com.  Hugs to all.
