Operation Write Home sketch because I care

This week end I decided it would be fun to participate in Operation Write Home Labor Day Weekend Virtual Card Making Party…. what a mouth full. So far this has been a ton of fun. Here is the link to the original thread
Every few hours, another link will be posted over at the starting place on the Stars & Stamps blog. You can visit each stop and play along by making a card to go along with the challenge on that page. Are you ready for your first challenge? Go!
The first challenge is to make a winter or Christmas themed card for OWH following  a sketch!

I cut the roses at 3 1/2 on my cricut using the Arstiste cartridge accent 1 letter F
                                       blog roses 011
I then cut all the edges so that I could separate the petals, and I inked the edges on both sides

start on the outside edge and begin rolling with your quilling tool turn tight for the center and wrap looser as you go

                               blog rose 001
             Keep turning until you get to the center tab, glue underneath and stick to the tab
                               blog rose 004
                                           now just ruffle your petals and that is it!!
