Art Nouveau - French Country

One the way to the movies Friday night I made the mistake of going by Michael's to kill some time.   I was not planning to buy anything but when I saw the DCWV French Country paper stack, I could not resist.  After all, I had a 40% off coupon.  I used it and the Art Nouveau Cricut cartridge to make this card.

I designed this card in Cricut Craft Room.  I used George and the border feature of Elegant Edges to make the card base.  The paper is from DCWV French Country Stack.  The lady is from the Art Nouveau Cricut cartridge, page 49.  I chose the different elements of the design and colored them with the Best Friends and Nursery Tale Imagine cartridges.  After printing them and cutting them out with my Imagine, I inked some of the elements and adhered them together.  She was cut at 6".  The scalloped oval is from Elegant Edges.  I intertwined ribbon through the holes in the scallops.  I liked the way this card turned out.
