 Tape scalloped edging to roof edge and top with Maya Road roses to cover seam.
On top of roof edge apply any black and white Tim Holtz decorative tape.

Make flowers for roof from scalloped edging by sewing more gathers into it to form a circle.Glue to roof with Glossy Accents. Use two cranberry-colored Kaisercraft paper blooms, touching up the edgeswith M scrapbook paint (Manilla) and small brush. Center in flower you sewed. Find some twigs outside and lightly brush with gold metallic paint. Glue under flower.

 Embellish sides of wishing well and top with slot using Petaloo Velvet Hydrangeasin rose and cream colors.  Again use Glossy Accents. You may need to clamp the flowers and leaves in place with clothespins till glue dries.
