Victoria Gardens and Style Essentials

  I recently purchased a new Cricut Cartridge called "Creative Cards."  I think this cartridge is going to see a lotta love from me.  I thought this particular card would work well with a large floral print behind the trellis cut and possibly with a quatrefoil patterned paper.  What do you think?

  My Echo Park 12x12 papers came out to play today!  "Victoria Gardens" works well for Spring and for Mother's Day and "Style Essentials" is a great collection when I need a coordinating paper.  I have used "Style Essentials" with other Echo Park collections as well as My Mind's Eye and Carta Bella; it makes terrific monochromatic cards too.  I also used my i-rock heat tool and black gems on my sentiment tag.

Supplies:
paper:  Echo Park "Style Essentials" pink quatrefoil (background); Echo Park "Victoria Gardens" Rose Garden (large print), Wind Chime (trellis), and Rose (small green floral print on sentiment tag); card stock by Stampin' Up! (old olive)
Cricut cartridge:  Creative Cards
punches:  Stampin' Up! (sentiment tag)
sentiment:  Stampin' Up! Teeny Tiny Wishes

Happy Thursday!
