Elegant Cakes Celebrate Card

Donna and I are presently offering the Elegant Cakes Cartridge as blog candy.  I wanted to make another card using it. 
 I had purchased a small stack of Simply Elegant paper by The Paper Studio.  So I decided to put the two together.  My card is an A2 size.  I chose two different papers and added them to my card front.  I tied a ribbon around them before I adhered them to the card.  I cut the flower using Elegant Cakes and another gold colored paper.  I believe the sizes were 2 3/4", 2 1/2" and 2 1/4".  I cut between the flower petals a little deeper because I wanted my flower to curl out more.  I curled the petals with a round pencil, adhered them together and then inserted a black and gold brad.  This is a simple card but sometimes the paper you use makes the card and you don't need a lot of embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by.  We love your visits and comments.  God Bless You!!!  Peggy
