Cricut Card - It's Your Day

With some time to play around, I decided to create a card using some of the Basic Fundamental papers and some floral images from the Flower Market Cartridge. I tried various wreaths before I finally settled on the one that you see on the card. It just looked like the best one that fit.

The colour scheme was one that I really had to think about carefully. The flowers are cherry blossoms so I did want to keep them to a pink colour scheme. For the background, I wanted to use the embossed woodgrain paper from the Basic collection. I didn't want to add a lot of additional colours so that meant choosing one other colour. Sea Glass also had the option of glitter paper so with that in mind, I decided to cut the wreath using the glitter paper to add some additional interest to my card. Since the vellum was the background, it had to be set on a coloured background to show the pattern. 

So, here is the final product. With a lot of birthdays coming up in January, this will be used for one of them for sure. 

Since the shimmer pen doesn't show up very well in photographs, here is close up to show that it IS indeed used on the flowers!
