Mom's Day Card - Cutters Creek Treat Design Team Challenge

A few weeks ago, Kim the owner of the online store Cutter's Creek sent each of her Design Team Members a treat, a product from Cutters Creek. This is what I came up with using the Cutters Creek Branded Micro Roses she sent.

My card base is Kraft card stock cut and folded to make a 5" x 7" card base. I used Lori's Garden Imagine cartridge and the 5:7 rectangle stock image one sized at 5" and flooded with the orange and brown pattern and one sized at 5.2" and flooded with a dark apricot color. I cut the the solid color mat to 4 3/4" X  6 3/4" and punched it with a scallop border punch. I then cut the patterned paper to 3 1/2" Xx 6 3/4" and adhered it to the apricot piece with my ATG gun. I added a piece of white lace trim. For the rose bushes I used the Freshly Picked Cricut cartridge, my Gypsy and the Imagine app. Again all colors are from Lori's Garden and the bushes were cut at 3.6". Instead of cutting the roses and the ribbon I gently removed the bows from the little flower bouquets, and using some small wire cutters snipped the roses from the wire. I attached the roses to the bush with some small glue dots and also the ribbon. The bushes are attached to the card base with foam tape. I inked around the edges of all the parts of the rose bush using some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dye. My sentiment was stamped with Walnut Stain distress ink. I added some brown pearls as a finishing touch.

To see the projects the other Design Team members came up with please visit the Cutters Creek Design Team Blog. The Design Team came up with some wonderful projects so I hope you pay us  visit and let us know what you think.
