pick a petal with a twist...

Couldn't decide on a retired set to use today and this set was sitting on my desk (I am designing a card using this set for a workshop I have on Sunday) and since I am basically lazy I thought I would use it. I wanted to try a Suspension Card today, I got the instruction from another Beate Johns tutorial (follow the link above).

What I used:
Pick a Petal, Think Happy Thoughts and Stem Sayings stamp sets
Whisper White, Regal Rose card stock
Pretty in Pink Prints designer paper (level 1 hostess set)
Regal Rose and Wild Wasabi classic ink pads
1 3/8" and 1 1/4" circle punches
double stitched Wild Wasabi grosgrain ribbon
sticky strip, dental floss

Below is a picture of what the suspended circle looks like when it is twisted.
