Centerpiece for a Royal Birthday (Aranjament pentru o zi de nastere regala)

Happy Wednesday everyone and welcome to Cuttlebug Be Inspired #50.
Salut. Bine ati venit la Cuttlebug Be Inspired #50.

Today we challenge you to make a centerpiece that will wow your guests. Remember you still have time to complete last week's challenge: mini albums.
Azi va provocam sa realizati un aranjament care va decora centrul mesei la petrecerea voastra impresionandui pe oaspeti. Nu uitati ca mai aveti inca timp sa participati la concursul de saptamana trecuta: minialbume.

Continuing with my "Princess Emily's 21st Birthady" theme, I made this very simple yet elegant centerpiece (click on images for larger view).
Continuand cu tema lunii "Aniversarea a 21 de ani aprintesei Emily" am realizat un aranjament simplu dar elegant (click pe imagini pentru a le mari).

I was going to make a topiary with white roses, but then I don't know how I saw this paper roll tube (the craft color one) and i was instantly inspired to do this more modern design.
Intentionam sa fac un pom cu trandafiri, dar, vazand rola de servetele de bucatarie am fost inspirata sa fac aceste tuburi.

The highest tube, as I said is a recycled kitchen paper roll. The shorter ones were made from Core'dinations Black Magic cardstoc which is my absolute favorite lately.
Cel mai inalt dintre tuburi este rola de hartie reciclata. Celelalte doua sunt facute din carton Core'dinations Black Magic -- preferatul meu in ultimul timp.

How to (Instructiuni realizare)

1. I first passed my cardstock through the cuttlebug (I used the same Fleur de Lis folder throughout all my designs this month).
Stantezi hartia cu ajutorul cuttlebug si sablonul Fleur de Lis.

2. Then I rolled the embossed cardstock on my paper roll so it gor a nice circular shape.
Rulezi hartia stantata pe tubul de carton ramas de la o rola se servetele pentru bucatarie.

3. Adhere the cardstock to form a tube. You have to use a very good adhesive (I used UHU Twist and glue -- the yellow and black bottle).
Lipesti capetele pentru a forma un tub. Atentie, trebuie folosit un adeziv foarte bun. (Eu am lucrat cu UHU Twist and Glue -- sticla galben cu negru)

4. I put a purple satin flower with a salmon pearl center on top of each tube.
Asezi cate o floare din saten deasupra fiecarui tub.

5. I added a rose shape scented candle to complete the centerpiece.
Adaugi o lumanare parfumata in forma de trandafir pentru a completa aranjamentul.

I really love how these flowers came out so I am going to make lots of them :)
Imi place cum au iesit aceste flori din saten, asa ca voi face mult mai multe. :)

Great job, Meda. Your centerpiece is gorgeous! I'm still thinking about mine. I'm going to work on it over the weekend, although it will be a busy one. This month has been so much fun and I just got 11 new CB folders so now I have lots more to play with! Hugs to you! Thanks for the birthday wishes!
