First Card Finally

Here is a card I made.  ( keep in mind I am new at doing this, hehe)  This card was made with DCWV  The Sweet stack .  I also used Cricut Georges basic Shapes to make the flowers cut at 2 1/2" , 2" .1 1/2" , 1 1/4" and 1" from asst'd  solid color paper from Wal Mart and DCWV.  I also put a doily as a base to the octagon shape from GBS cartridge cut at 2, 2 1/2 and 3".  I cut a strip of white card stock and used Martha Stewart punch  Doily lace.  I added 3 buttons on the bottom and a Center button (can not remember where I got it) that says..." Thinking of you makes me smile"   Inside the card is blank.  Thanks for any critiques.  have a great day.    PHEW!!!  I did it:.

  2. Super sweet card! Great colors and nice papers!
