B-day Made with my Gypsy

Couple challenges out there I was wanting to enter and was able to to put a few together. It is always nice to have extra cards you can pull out in case of an emergency. The following card I used my Gypsy to size and make sure all fit together. I love the color combo and the flowers make it really pop.

Challenges I am entering are:
 Birthday Sundaes Anything Goes
 Sassy Lady-Gypsy



 The everything was made off the Wild Card cartridge using my Gypsy.
I used the scalloped card feature, used a circle using a layer on another card, and another feature for the flowers . The scallop tag is from  a Martha Steward punch and then added a birthday sentiment.

 I double cut the flowers in different colors scrunched them, inked them and added a button with bakers twine for embellishment.
One of the features i love with the Wild Card cartridge is the envelope feature. Using the Gypsy really makes sizing so simple. I had my Gypsy for a year before I really started using it. Once I picked it up again and forced myself to use it, I can't put it down. The Gypsy really is one of my favorite Cricut accessories.

Here is the card peaking out of the envelope the colors are just great. One of the challenges what to use teal and green. I love how these colors compliment each other so well. This really was a simple card but yet so elegant, I can't wait to give it to a friend for their birthday.

I wanted to add a similar card for another challenge so switched out the sentiments and WALA new card for a new challenge. Whimsical Wednesday-Spell it out.


Thanks for  stopping by, and checking out my creations.
