Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge #37

I decided to join the Cricut circle weekly challenge...this week. The site has had designers that have showcased different techniques. I chose to try Suzanne's technique of Cuttlebug embossing vellum. I cut an extra flower layer out of vellum and used embossing plates to emboss...it gives the flowers another layer and texture. Since I had the Cuttlebug already out I embossed the background paper too. I know Mother's day is a long way off, but as I was working on the card...and it just screamed Mom's Day.

Recipe:
  1. MME Stella Rose-Hazel paper
  2. Bazzill-craft cardstock
  3. vellum
  4. white uni-ball gel pen
  5. Stampin' Up-ribbon, word window and sentiment stamp
  6. CTMH-black ink
  7. White Bella Bling
  8. BG-blue pearls
  9. EK Success corner punch
  10. Cricut Cart- Elegant Edges, Country Life
  11. Cuttlebug and Embossing plates-Polka Dot, Herringbone, Tiny Bubbles and Cassies Brocade
  12. Cricut carts-Country Life and Elegant Edges

Thanks for stopping by today to see my anteater. Who knew his tongue was 2 feet long?!?! Your card is beautiful. That cut is one of my favorites from Country Life. It always changes (colors/patterns), but remains lovely.
