Blessing to you

This card was inspired by a sketch this week for a challenge on the Cricut message board.  I think it came out so pretty.  I always have trouble with pictures of cards that are light pink, it never seems to show the color well.  
The cuts are all from the Cricut Lite cartridge Lovely Floral.  I heard some of the ladies on the Cricut message board talking about and when I went to Wal Mart and saw it marked down I picked it up.  Wow it is a great cartridge, and it also has a cool font on it.  I think I will be reaching for this one often.  The center scallop circle is cut from Core'dinations pearl pink paper and then embossed using a Sizzix folder, the "frame" scallop was cut from vellum.  The edges of the paper I tore using a wavy ruler that I have, it left a nice edge.
All this shows up better in this close up
The green swirls were also cut using Lovely Floral as were the flowers.  I added a few white dots with my pen to match the dots on the ribbon.  Blessings to You is a stamp, then cut it with my Nesties.

Thanks for stopping to take a look at my card, I would love to hear what you think of it.  And don't forget to stop by tomorrow as it is my 1 year blog anniversary and I will be doing a small giveaway.
