This Can Be a Fast Card But.....

I had a little time this afternoon so I thought I would make a quick card for the blog.  What was supposed to be a quick card turned out to take a long time.  Why was I surprised?  I decided on a background and started to cut it with my Cricut Explore.  Everything went fine until I got to the intricate top layer.  My machine started tearing the design.  I tried a couple of things but then called Cricut support.  A lovely lady named Heather stayed on the phone with me for an hour and 2 minutes until the problem was solved.  Thank you, Heather.

Card supplies:
6X6" card base
Background - Rose Bow Background from Anna Griffin Ribbons and Bows Cricut cartridge
Flowers - Anna Griffin embellishments.

So you can see, it should have been easy, not stressful to make this card.  I didn't put a sentiment on it until I send it.

Thank you for visiting with me today.  God Bless You!!!! Peggy
