Challenge # 2 @ Amber's Crafts and Stuff (I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings)

This week we were challenged to use die cuts.

Since I have recently fallen deeply in love with my mom's cricut,
I used it to make this thank you card.

I used a pretty blue pre-made card base.

I used the cricut to cut the bird, the cage, the "thank you".

The circle I cut out myself with my mother's manual  circle cutter 

I used my favorite tool - the corner rounder for the card edges.
(I have a problem with corner rounding. Mostly photographs.)

Behind the circle I used a paper doiley that I pulled off
a craft I made with the sunday school class that I help out with at church.

"By the way, Bailey, Mrs. Flowers sent you some tea cookies."
