Rosette dare

A girlfriend sent me a photo of a Halloween rosette decoration she made at a SU workshop.  I liked it, and felt challenged to make a similar item. I didn't have the punches and stamps she used, so I improvised with what I had.
The lighting isn't great, but you get the general idea.  I used about half a sheet of CTMH double-sided paper for all the DP in the project.  There was some stamping on the orange cardstock, but most of this is just punching, die-cutting, and glue.  I used a bar coaster for a sturdy base; I would guess the whole project is about 6 inches across.  Mostly, I built depth by curling the paper into cones.  The sentiment is diecut from an old Zip-e-cuts alpha.  This project is 100% paper; no buttons or ribbons or bling.  I even restrained from using metal or glitter!
