A big sale at SU, and Mojo Monday 265

Before I go any further, today and today only Monday, Oct 29th 2012, Stampin Up is having a one day sale like never before, every stamp and stamp set is on sale for 15% off!    Exceptions are bundles, wheels and hostess sets. So hurry and place your order right now, just in time for your Christmas cards.
To order from me, go here.

Now, on to Mojo Monday.   Love, love, love todays sketches, choices of round or square cards this week.
Here is the sketch.
Pretty neat huh? Now here is what I came up with early this morning.
Very Vanilla
Gumball green
Cherry Cobbler
Patterned paper:
Festival of Prints DSP (2 sheets in the pack come with a patterned side and a side with decorative squares.)
Snow Festival DSP, (comes in a 6 1/2x4 1/2 inch pad of double sided paper) 
Stamp set:
Ornament Keepsakes ( In the Holiday catty) I used it for the small circle on top of the rosette, you can use anything you have.
At the center of this card is a square from Festival of Prints designer paper pack, also in the Holiday catty. 
You will find it on my SU site available for download if you don't have it.
So, square card, very vanilla, Snow Festival  paper cut to size, 4 3/9 inch scallop square, from the Bigz duo die, square cut of very vanilla with inked edges, then the square from the Festival of prints.
I added the rosette, I cut a 1 in wide by 9 inch long piece of cardstock, scored every 1/4 inch. (Super easy using the brand new SU cutter, avail Nov 1.) fold back and forth at each score, glue ends together. Set the rosette down, push in toward center until it lays flat and use a glue gun to hold right in the center. 
Tip: Use the new Silicone mat available in the Holiday catty, the glue will peal right off. 
I topped the rosette with the stamped circle, cutting it out with the 1In circle punch, and added the very vanilla seam binding for a bow. 
Happy stamping. Thanks for stopping by.
