Week 7 Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge:

This weeks Challenge
Weekly Challenge #7: Thank You Color Challenge
Cultivating an attitude of gratitude is a great way to enrich our daily lives. This week we would like you to create a THANK YOU card  using a minimum of 2 different Cricut Cuts and the color inspiration provided below.  Magenta, Apricot, Deep Olive, and Golden Yellow.

Cartidges used:  Cricut Imagine Imagine More, Gypsy Wanderings, Designer Calendar.
Cased From:  Template (This is where you will see the project as well as box instructions)
What I did:  Using the CI Imagine More, use basic shape for scalloped circle cut at 6" (cut 2).  I filled with the orange checked patten.  Use Gypsy Wanderings  Leaves from your Gypsy cut at 2".  Use Designer Calender in your CI under words you will see Give Thanks.  Cut at 1 1/2" fill with Magenta.
I used my Big Shot and various folders to give texture to all paper items except the words.
I used a brown Copic Marker to edge the words.
Ribbon is from Stampin Up and some twine I have had for years.
The flower is the Carnation from Cuttlebug quilled flower set.I cut three of the long strips, two of the middle smaller petals and three of the outer petals.  I found if you glue the staight strips to make a long strip, take the two small petals and put them on top of each other off set them and glue to form one strip, and with the three larger petals, glue them as one strip off setting (put them on top of each other), when you quill them they work and don't form the triange look or look not totally filled in.
Paper:  Bazzill and Memory Maker.
Provo Craft Products:  Cricut Imagine, Cricut Imagine More Cartridge,Regular Cricut Cartridge: Designer's Calendar, Gypsy and Gypsy Wandertings, Cuttlebug folders, Cuttlebug Carnation Quilling set.
