My Sheri Crafts Challenge #91- Back 'n Forth

This weeks challenge at My Sheri Crafts is: use an accordion/fan fold as one of your project's elements ... can be simply a strip, fan, rosette -- whatever you imagine!
 I couldn't resist, I made two cards for it! :)
The first card, I wanted to show the rosette as more of an embellishment! I was trying to show a little bit of different ways you can use a rosette on your cards!
