Exploring Cricut - Spring!

Hello! I'm glad you stopped by today as it is my turn to share at  Exploring Cricut and More. We just got done with Spring Break and I always feel like once that comes and goes I'm ready for summer. But, we still have a few more weeks of school left and it is definitely not warm enough around here. So, to keep me thinking warm thoughts, I decided to create a spring inspired card.

The wreath could be cut as is or you could cut with your own colored papers. I decided to do both for this card. I enlarged the colored flowers to fit the size I needed and then print and cut them. For the wreath itself, I used papers that I had in my stash. To do this I traced each piece and then cut out with my Cameo.  I added Stickles to the flowers and wreath.  There was also a base to the wreath that I did not to use. 

The tag with sentiment was an SVG of Vintage labels and I apologize but I can't remember where I got them. I did see at the Silhouette store that there are some cute ones from Jillibean Soup that look very similar.  I changed the verbage on the tag by ungrouping the image. Once that's done I could add any sentiment I chose. It is nice to do this, especially if you don't have a stamp in your collection with just the right words to use:)
