LIM 14 White on White

Well at last, I have done it, after a LOT of umming and aahing, I decided to look at my 3 Cricut cartridges, that came with my machine and decided it HAD to be from one of these as I didn't know how to make the beautiful flowers that have been made for this challenge.

I cut a cake and stand from the Straight from the Nest cartridge embossed with my 3 cuttlebug folders added a lovely ribbon with hearts I had in my stash, added, my always on a card, Stickles, then added more ribbon behind the cut out middle pieces to add a little more glitter, printed my card with grey (hope it's not too dark) and there you have it,  (Easier said than done though)

I think I'm pleased, but always have to wait until the next day to decide, crazy ay?

Edited,  - Loved KathyK  comment about the ribbon panel looking like a garter, think I'll mention this to a prospective buyer, lol

EDITED 2 2/6/11 - I have put this in to Bitten by the Bug, I don't know the rules, so don't know if I am allowed to do this, if not I apologise.

This is fab. It's so stylish and I love the ribbon addition. I'm glad you got to use your Cricut. I've had my Silhouette for a year and a half and only just really getting to grips with it and enjoying what it can do. Sue.x

I am sure I commented on your card but it seems blogger thought you had too much praise, I don't agree so am commenting again. I love it very clever idea and absolutely stunning. You know what they say better late than never.
