Cricut Cardz Challenge: Tall Card ( 9X4)

Good evening!! I cannot believe that it's Thursday evening already!!! Seriously, where has the week gone???  I had so many grand plans to spend some much needed time in my craft room this week and this is the first evening I actually made it here!!! My creativity seems to be still on vacation!!! Thankfully , the DT at Cricut Cardz Challenge has posted a new challenge that got me dusting off my papercrafting supplies !!!
This week , we've been presented with the challenge to make a tall card ( 9X4)  using any cartridge we desire.
Since I'm still feeling a little blah in the creativity department, I thought I'd stick with a pretty basic design. Not a lot of glitz and glam here, but you know what... I really like how it turned out!!!
I pulled out my Cindy Loo cart and as I flipped through it I found this pretty flower ( looks a lot like a tulip to me !!) . It didn't need a lot of fancy touches , which suits me just fine right now!! :):):)   I cut it at 3.5 inches.
I did use a little Smooch spray for the leaves ( a girls ' gotta have  a little bling, right???) and some UTEE for the flower. A few brads and this flower is complete. I also used the same cart for the sentiment , which I cut at 1 inch. A stitched border for the card base and I'm done!!!
It feels good to create again......

Now I'm off to check out those other  fabulous cards; you should ,too!!!!

Until next time..... happy crafting!!
