Deco Flower

This card is for There's Magic In the Air, to pick one of Paper Cupcakes images, use an (elongated) circle and lace. I wanted to keep this card simple and focus on the flower so I used a lot of white space. It's been awhile since I cuttlebugged a background, much less  2 on one card. Sorry for the blurry pics, it's too late for me to focus!

This would be the front...
And this would be the inside...
I am also entering this card in the following challenges...
1. There's Magic In the Air
2. Charisma Cardz Sketch
3. Pile It On to use flowers
4. Handful of Stamps to use wishes in the sentiment, mine is on the inside
5. A Spoonful of Sugar to use the theme, Spring is in the Air (oh, I wish!)
6. Cupcake Craft Challenges to keep it simple
7. Die Cuts R Us  to not use designer paper
8. Other Lovelies to make a RAK card and pass it on
9. Pals Paper Arts to KISS - keep it simple, Sweetie!
10. Stamp Somthing to give your project a Touch of Spring (again, please hurry Spring!)

Boy, oh boy, I must be slowing down - only 10 challenges this week!

Better get to bed and sleep on it...Night all...

Okay it's an "elongated" circle, but I think it's GREAT! I love the multiple embossing patterns and your color choice is gorgeous. Absolutely love your finished inside too! Thanks for playing along with us again this week and can't wait to see what you do next week!

Wow, this is a very striking card, I truly love the design of this so unique, and I love how you used the embossing as well. Also, love how you only added lace to the one side, just over all lovely and striking!! You showcased the image so beautifully!
