Circle Blogiversary Sketch Challenge

This October celebrates one since the Circle Blog was started.  There is always so much inspiration, fun and giveaways on the blog.  So this week we had to follow the following sketch and the prize is An Imagine!
I had fun with this, as I love to follow sketches and I think it came out so pretty.  You had to follow the sketch and use at least 2 different Cricut cuts.
I had cut this adorable teapot a couple weeks ago when I got my Everyday Pop Up cards cartridge.  I just love this cut so I left it on my desk to be used when I found the right project and this was it!  It is cut at 3 inches.  I Cuttlebugged the yellow part with the swirls embossing folder, I did not want the embossing to be so deep, so I ran it through again under the embossing folder to flatten out some of the embossing.   I did the same thing with the yellow flower.  The flower was also cut from the Everyday Pop up cards cartridge.
All the papers were printed and cut using the Imagine and CCR, the white piece was cut but of course not printed.  The background flower paper is printed from the Imagine cartridge Blossom and it was all printed on a mica coated paper which has a slight sparkle to it.  Happy birthday was cut from the MS Elegant cake cartridge, it was printed with the blue but I covered it with blue ink and heat embossed it with sparkle so it would sparkle.  So with all those cuts this card should qualify for the challenge.

Here is a closer look so you can see the difference in the embossing.  I used the swirls folder on the white but did not flatten it out.  I added a bling for the dot on the "i" of birthday.  Lots of other bling on this card.  It is a large card, half sheet of letter size paper.

So glad you found your way to my blog today, I would love it if you left a comment for me to read.

I think the best word to describe this one is "Sweet"! It's beautiful and I love the texture, but I look at it and it is just so Sweet! You know how some colors go together and just pop that one word? "Sweet"!
