I am using patterned scrap papers from DCWV Fresh Floral Stack and solids are Recollections. I am using Mary's CARDZ TV Sketch 8. I will be giving this card to my grandkids to give their Mom.

Cricut Cartridge:
Using Insert Shapes in Cricut Design Space, the floral paper is cut 4" wide x 5.25" high. The purple circle pattern paper is cut 1.5" wide x 5.25" high. Yellow strip is cut .75" wide x 5.25" high. Green mat is cut 2.5" wide x 3.25" high and the white mat is cut 2.25" wide x 3" high.

Cricut Cartridges:
Hopping Down the Bunny Trail - Happy Easter Frame is cut 3.36" wide x 2.62" high.  There are five layers for this image and I like the way it turned out.
