I love,love,love my wild card cart!!!!!

I really do love my wild card cartridge, it is so much fun. My favourite a the moment is the scalloped circle card on the setting where you get the lovely little cutouts aroud the edge.
This one is for my friend Vicky,I cut it at 5" and cut a 4" cirlce out of some lilac coloured coredinations card. I popped the 4" circle through my cuttlebug in the divine swirls embossing folder and sanded the top of the embossing lightly to get the core colour to show and inked around the edges with a couple of lilacy colours, one light and one dark and stuck it onto the card base.
I cut some flowers from george at 1/2" and inked around the edges of them with a whispers pen and popped a little diamonte on each one for the center. I threaded a bit of ribbon through 2 of the little cutouts and stuck the cute little flowers onto the ribbon with some tacky glue.
The gorgeous girl is one of grab-a-doodle-do's Lily collection, I chalked around her in light pink and put a shimmery creamy colour on her skin, a bit more pink blusher on her cheeks ( i may of been getting bit carried away!!!!! made myself stop when i started thinking about eye makeup for her!!!lol!!!)and added some glittery glue to her dress and bow to bling her up a bit.
The little wooden circle alphabet is one I picked up ages ago, I just inked the edges as it looked a bit lost when I first put them on!
I glitter glued around the edges of the card too and popped some doodle dots around the scallops and a little bow at the top and hey prseto she was done!!!
I didn't take a picture of the inside but it was a 4" circle of the patterned card,glitter glued around the edges with a little happy birthday from my design runner mounted on the plain lilac card and a few doodle dots here and there!!!
I have had a super day today. It was strangely warm this morning so Mo and I spent all morning spreading some compost in the back garden and playing then we had lunch which Mo prepared for us, chopped up carrots,cucumber,tomatoes and cheese (yummy!!) and I won a rak on the cricut mb!! it doesn't get much better than that!!!!
Have a lovely sunday everybody and thankyou for popping in xxxxxx
