Thanks for playing and good luck!

Today we are featuring the new "Circles Clear Stamp" set and scalloped die, for my card I used this very pretty circle frame with the image of a rose, the little vase and flowers and the sentiment.

For the shape of the card I used my Cricut Machine, the shape is from the "Storybook" cartridge and I used the Cricut Craft Room program to size my layers.  The scalloped edge on the left I created by diecutting 3 scalloped circles and layering under the patterned paper panel.

I diecut the scalloped circle and stamped the circle image and the tiny vase with distress ink, for the flowers I applied green and blue ink to my stamp with Marvy markers and stamped it.  The little flower I made with an image from "Flowers Clear Stamp" set and the coordinating die, I shaped with an embossing tool to give it dimension.  As a final touch I added some adhesive rhinestones and Stickles for a little sparkle.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day.
