Happy Birthday, Mom! Card made using the NEW Cricut Shall We Dance cartridge!

Hello, everyone! I hope you are all having a great weekend. I plan on going to October Fest in Addison, Texas today. I go every year and we have the best time! We eat all the sausage and strudel we can handle! If you are in the Dallas area this weekend I highly recommend it.
Today I have a card that I made for my mother's birthday which was on Wednesday. She loves anything that has to do with roses, so I knew straight away that I would cut the bouquet. The cartridge used is Shall We Dance which is a Cricut Circle exclusive. This cartridge will help me scrap all of those ballet photos from when I was a small girl. I am so excited!

The bouquet is cut at 5". I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border.
The paper is Bo Bunny and My Mind's Eye. The Stamps are Papertrey Ink and SU!.

Have a wonderful weekend!! See you back here on Monday where I will have yet another project made using the new cartridges!

Thanks for showing this cut, when I saw the imagines for Shall We Dance, I couldn't figure out what it was - of course, a bouquet! TFS the great card.

Like your card but not wild about the cart. I think it was a poor choice for the circle group. Too specific.

Luv the Shall We Dance Cart. Have a question thou. What is the cricut circle? I noticed it on Cricut.com web site, but no info. What is it? Your card is absolutely adorable. As it turns out, this is my favorite cart. If it is an exclusive to Cricut Circle, how do you get in? What am I missing???????

What al elegant card! I am sure that she will love it! I do hope that Provo Craft decides to release tha Circle carts to the rest of us at some time. The cost to be a Circle member is just too high....

Very sweet card! Feminine but not too feminine... love it! They introduced the Circle right about the time I was laid off my job so I didn't have a chance to join. This cart looks really cool though. Great job as always!
