Exploring Cricut - Cricut 1,2,3 Challenge

Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App

For this week's Challenge, we had to use 1-piece of ribbon, 2-cricut cuts, and 3-brads, buttons, or other embellishments.

My card base is a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Stampin' Up! Pear Pizzazz folded in half.  The layer is a piece of SU Twitterpated Designer Series Paper.  The round base for flowers was cut using the Cricut Paper Trimmings cartridge using SU Island Indigo, SU Baja Breeze, and SU Whisper White for the circle.

I added a piece of SU Ridinghood Red ribbon.

I used the Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge to cut out the flowers and leaves.  The flowers were cut out in slightly increasing sizes and layered using SU Ridinghood Red and SU Blushing Bride cardstock.   
I used SU Pear Pizzazz to cut different sized leaves.  Pink and red brads hold the flowers together!  Of course I used several different adhesives and SU dimensionals.  The senitment is from SU Teeny Tiny Messages.  I used the SU Word Window punch.
