Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is time for another fun challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. Ch. 300 is Blue and Silver with any die cut. 
I am playing with Cuttlebug folders and dies that were in a recently purchased Cricut Mystery Box. My card measures 5" x 7" and is cut from silver cardstock. The blue paper is from Colorbok Pearlescent Paper pad.

Cuttlebug:
Anna Griffin Mix and Match Folders and Dies - I used the Versailles Frame on the 5" x 7" blue pearlescent paper. The Get Well Soon die was used on the silver paper.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Elegant Embellishments 2 - The tulip flower is cut 2" wide x 2.2" high. This is my first time to use this pretty image. Actually it is only the second image of this recently purchased cartridge that I have cut. I do like the way it turned out! I added a blue crinkle ribbon on the flower. Thanks Karen at Little Scrap Pieces for the pretty ribbon.

For the inside of the card:
Anna's Elegant Embellishments - The tag image is cut 4.24" x 4.24" from the blue and silver paper.
