Circle Weekly Challenge



Here is my entry for the Cricut Circle's first weekly challenge. We had to use two cuts from French Manor and add some bling. The French Manor cuts on this card are the bird bath, cut at 2 3/4", and the scalloped oval, cut at 1 3/4". The tree is from Paper Doll Dress Up, cut at 5", and the leaves are from Designer's Calendar, cut at 1". The grass is from Plantin Schoolbook, cut at 1".

Recipe:

4 1/4" x 11" Dark Chocolate Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2"
4" x 5 1/4" Pure Poppy Cardstock

Amazing! I love the way you thought outside the box. This card is so far from the anticipated use and it is just lovely. Great work!
