Very nice! I made a similar card for my mom for Mother's Day yesterday. Did you use a coluzzle to cut the ovals? If so, do you have any words of wisdom to get a clean cut? I am just starting to use mine and can't seem to cut all the way thru the cardstock for a clean cut. I bought this set - it is really nice and very versatile. I am going to save yours for future reference! TFS

Thank you graewolf - I did use the coluzzle to get the oval cuts for this. I know that when I first tried to use the coluzzle, I didn't have all the right stuff for the job, and I made a hash of it. When I went out and got the coluzzle mat and special blade, that made all the difference in the world. Also, don't try to guide the blade - keep it held up vertically, and since the blade is on a swivel head, the coluzzle guides it the way it needs to go. Since I switched, I haven't had a problem with the coluzzle blade not cutting through the CS - even the CS from SU which is especially thick.
