A Card From My Cricut Explore Testing

Here is a card I made as the result of a test I did on the Cricut Explore.
I read where the Cricut Explore was supposed to do really nice cuts even on small images.  So I had to test that.  I chose an image from Florals Embellished cartridge that had a lot of detail to it.  I sized it at 1.5" and the Explore cut it perfectly.  I thought, that would look pretty on a card so I cut 3 in all.

I took an A2 card and embossed it with the Anna Griffin Sierra Scroll Cuttlebug Folder.  I think the pattern on the folder looked a lot like the image.  What do you think?
 I pasted the images to the embossed card.
That is pretty but it needed just a little something else.  That's when I went to my flower stash & found some flowers I had gotten from the $1 bins at Michael's.  I think they were a good finishing touch.  There's plenty of room to put a sentiment when I get ready to send it out.
 Thank you for visiting with me today.  I really appreciate the input from you.  My poor little Max's hair has grown so much it hides his eyes.  So today we go get him groomed.  He is such a good baby.  Lots of times he sits on my lap while I craft.  He can see outside better from that vantage point.  Until later, God Bless You!!!!
