Cricut Explore Anna Griffin Thank You card


Today's project is one I made for the weekly Bitten By the Bug 2 challenge. This week we were asked to make a project made with flowers. As some of you might remember,  I recently decorated my Explore with vinyl and I used a beautiful flower cut. I love this cut so much that I had to use it again on this project. It is just so darn pretty! I cannot decide if I think it is a rose or peony.

Also, with this card I used a lace cut from the Anna Griffin Explore content. If you could see this in person, you would notice how beautifully the machine cut this. it did not eat the paper at all!

For the sentiment, I used the Banner Wishes stamp set and colored in the letters using markers.

This is a beautiful card Melanie! I love anything AG, so the doily and the flower just caught my eye right away. I think the flower looks like a Peony, but the leaves look like rose leaves. lol So who knows which it is, all I know is I love it! Hugs
