Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Entry

Happy Friday!  I thought I'd play along in YET another challenge ;)!  This one is for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge.  This is the first time I'm playing along in this site - check it out!  The challenge was to use some sort of embossing in our project, and of course, cricut cuts!  I chose to do an A2 card for this one.

A more close-up of the embossing using the Swiss Dots CB folder.

I kept the inside blank so I can write my own sentiment to whomever I want to give this to at a later date.  I did add a strip of leftover cardstock punched with an MS puncher.

Details of my project:
*A2 size
*rose cut with its layers - Lori's Garden Imagine Art cart
*"Smile" cut - Gypsy Wanderings cart, embossed with Swiss Dots CB folder and embellished with light blue button (from my stash)
*2 different MS punch around the page punchers
*red polka dotted sheer ribbon from Walmart

***A little sidenote:
Now, don't laugh.  I follow a LOT of craft blogs but don't always get emails from all bloggers when they make new posts - don't know why!  BUT I just really paid attention to my blogger DASHBOARD today and found out I can keep up with the ones I follow this way ROTFL!  I'm still learning about this whole blogging thing and loving it. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Your card is beautiful. I love the punch that youi chose and the embossing on the title is great.

I'd like to invite you to visit my blog, I am also having a challenge that requires embossing and this project would be perfect.
