Cricut.com MB challenge

I loved making this card,I used my DCWV Latte stack.I rarely use it I usually just look and stroke it. :) I used Gypsy font to make the border,just welded it together and the style of card I got from http://susanbluerobot.blogspot.com she has all the measurements how to make this style card and some great exsamples she has made herself.(love the safari ones)Just a few bits of doodling at its done. I think this would make a great male card or even a wedding or anniversary card.Hope you like.

Cricut.com challenge card.

Heres my attempt at the challenge on Cricut.com forum.We had to use the daisy off of WIMG page 85 and brads.I used DCWV Blossom and butterflies stack for the base,DCWV latte stack for the large daisy and Funky hands dreams come true cd rom for the pink daisys.I love doing cards with flowers on because you can use really bright colours.The little daisys are made with my SU punch with sakura gold glittered middles.Then it is all doodled and inked to death as usual. lol
