Good Luck Gayle!
I used SCAL and the cricut to cut the letters. It is hard to see but I cut a shadow for the letters as well. I layered the words onto card that had been punched along one edge, then attached it to the card.
The rosette is made by scalloping the edge of a 12" strip of paper, then scoring lines down from each of the scallops and folding to create a mini fan fold. Join the edges together to form a circle with the scalloped edge at one side and the straight edge at the other. You then need to push the straight side into the centre and down so that it goes flat. Have a circle or square ready glued or taped to stick the centre of the rosette on the wrong side. On the right side, you can add a scalloped circle and decorate it as desired.
I added some swirls to the underneath of the rosette then layered it on the card. Added a narrow black ribbon to finish it off.
