I did not get to this challenge until late in the afternoon. I apporoached it with an ease that would soon leave me. I decided to use my Cricut which doesn't get much use on my cards so I thought today would be perfects. Well...two hours later, this very simple card is the result......I have made several flowers.....and the colors were wrong, the size was wrong, couldn't get the leaves the size and outline I wanted.....I could have handcut all of this faster....I do love my cricut, but I find it so much more efficient for scrapbooking......
and, of course, it wouldn't have anything to do with me???? the operator????? NAH!!! It's all the machine's fault................that's my story and I'm sticking to it................

WOW! YOUr card just pops right at ya! It is beautiful! But hey, I know what you mean when you just have one of those days where nothing seems to come together. I had one the other day with the colour challenge, and after MUCH frustration, threw the towel in. Anyhoo, I digress, your card is STUNNING. Thanks for not giving up!!
