My first Cuttlebug Brocade Window card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

My Cuttlebug folders arrived! Whenever I saw the great sale on some older Cuttlebug folders at Cricut, I jumped at the chance to purchase the Emboss Plus 5" x 7" Brocade Window at $1.99. I wanted to buy more of the Emboss Plus folders, but they were already sold out.
This is my first card using the Brocade Window and I really like the looks! Card is 5" x 7" cut from a cream Recollections cardstock. The cut and embossed window is from The Paper Studio Light Burlap. For the window opening I used The Paper Studio Eloise Floral and the flowers are also cut from this paper.
Cricut Cartridge:
Mother's Day Bouquet - Flowers are cut using Flower 8 at varying sizes. 
Martha Stewart Fern punch used for the greenery. I do not know the name of that punch so I call it greenery punch. If you know the name, please tell me!
Like most of us, I have bought crafting items that I seem to hoard!  Last year, I bought pretty paper pad, brads, buttons, die cuts, and trinkets of Bo Bunny Little Miss collection. For today's project, I chose to use the dress form and the green scroll die cuts from the those colors! Dress form is pop-dotted on the card.
Other supplies from my stash include the Venice Lace Collection motif, crochet doily, the button that is in the doily and the Love button which is pop-dotted on the card. These buttons have been stashed a long time. Recollection Pearls and Michael's ribbon trim for the bow complete the look. Of course, lots of inking!
