Exploring Cricut-Daily Project

Well it's Saturday. And I get the ha 'pleasure' of working tonight. And I also have the great pleasure of getting to present the Daily Project at Exploring Cricut. Hope ya'll have been checking out the daily projects my DT Sisters have been creating this week. Some awesomeness for sure!! And don't forget that you have until 9pm, EST tonight to link up your project for our current challenge. I promise I'll be by to visit and admire your creativity!! I've got Spring on the brain. I was flipping through the booklet for the Art Nouveau cartridge and came across this vase. Thought the flowers were very pretty and so Spring looking, so decided to give it a try. It can be found on page 71. It is called Vase 3. I cute all of the layers at 3 inches. And guess what? I didn't even use my Gypsy Girl for this card!! Really----I didn't!!! I'm just so glad I remembered how to work the buttons on my Expression!!!! Haha I pulled all the papers from my scrapbin except for the card base. I used the Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder on the bg paper. Thought it added a nice touch with the vase. I also used some white tulle. Wrapped it around the bg paper and tied a bow at the side. Put some foam tape on the vase to pop it up and put it over the tulle. The sentiment is from the Think Spring stamp set from Cardz TV Stamps. Mary has the best stamp sets. Hop over and check them out. I stamped it on the same paper as the bg, trimmed it down and cut a piece of the green to go behind it to set it apart from the bg paper. I also used foam tape on the back. I added some Recollections pearls in the corners of the sentiment piece. Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)

Gosh, this is just so beautiful, how do you decide who the lucky recipient will be?? It's nice to be reminded that using the Gypsy is not necessary to make a beautiful card.
