My first challenge as hostess!

Well, this week I am hosting my first workshop wow demo challenge on SCS! I'm very excited. I will be co-hosting with pattyb. We have been working hard on a list of upcoming challenges that will be fun but will also help demonstrators plan their workshops.
What is a workshop wow? Let me quote Patty: Something that you can do at a Workshop, that's still fairly easy, but makes your Customers say "Wow, I can do that!"
This week's challenge is to use rose/roses on your card. I don't have any rose stamps, so I used Regal Rose and Rose Red.
So what do I think makes my card a wow? Here is how I took a basic design and stepped it up: 1. I made the focal image into a tag and added some fab ribbon. It's also on shimmery white cardstock; that's a wow on its own! 2. I used a coordinating wheel across the card base. 3. I used a Build a Brad in the center of the O and applied a small rub-on to the top of the plastic "bubble". Hopefully, now you're saying, "Wow, I can do that!"
If you're a demonstrator, and you'd like to play along with any of the challenges, you can find the Demo Challenges Forum here.
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Enjoy Every Moment, Daisy Dash jumbo wheel; Paper: Shimmery White, Regal Rose, Rose Red; Ink: Night of Navy, Regal Rose, Rose Red; Accessories: Fairy Tale Ribbon Originals, 1/2" circle punch, Pewter Build a Brad, bulk buy rub-ons
Happy stamping!
