Midnight madness #22 and Flourishes rose wreath

I took lots of artistic liberty with the layout as I really wanted to play with my new stamps from Flourishes. I used Basic grey Eva papers for the backgrounds and the inverted scalloped nestabilities from Spellbinders. Copics to color and thanks so much to Sheila's blog and her explanation I made the corners using a 1 1/2 inch sq, cut it to a triangle and then used tweezers to put it into a M.S. border punch. Check out her blog, she is the master at embellishments!!!! Have a great day and thanks Priscilla, these challenges are always so much fun.
