Quirky Thanksgiving Card

                                                           2ND POST TODAY

I recently cashed in my Cricut reward points and got the Nursery Rhyme cartridge.  I am not sure how much I will use it.  Kinda wish I picked something else.  I welded the shadow on my gypsy to make the card base.  Then I cut the main image on orange, green and black card stock.  I pieced the image together.   I am going to give this to my parents.
I am entering this into a few challenges see links below

GEOMETRIC CARD

My son is taking geometry this year.  I had to hire him a tutor, cuz I know zero about that subject.  Of course he thinks I should remember everything I learned 35 years ago.  But I know enough about shapes to make this geometric card that fits 2 shape challenges and a gypsy challenge.  I pulled out an old cartridge "Accent Essentials"  I welded the hexagons on my gypsy to make the base.  Then I used one of the circular flower motifs in the center.  The papers have dots or hexagons.  Pink flower is made from hexagon paper using a My Creative Time die.







FORMULA
Papers:Color bok;patterned-MME Dwell and Happier
Cricut:Accent Essentials
Brad:Girls Paperie
MCT:flower Petal Dies
Colorbox inks
