When I Count My Blessings I Count You Twice....

Over at the Cutting Cafe, Regina has some great new sets, including this Count Your Blessings circle.
I printed it onto brown cardstock, much too big - it was a mistake, then decided I could turn a mistake into something useful and cut the circle in half to form an arch at the top of the card. The base card is the doily cut from Wildcard, cut at 6" on blackout. All the papers are from the DCWV Indian Summer stack

I cut the flowers out of the paper, then cut the centres out of a couple more and lifted them up with silicone glue. I did this with a couple of the leaves as well
It's a beautiful day here in Florida, so off for a swim, then to do battle in Michaels to exchange a new Cricut cartridge I bought (winter woodland) which turns out to be faulty, none of the images will cut, all I can get is the font

Hi Enfys, you sure know how to make a girl envious, off for a swim, warm sunshine!!!!
I love your card, what a great shape, it's like a big flower under the arch, just lovely. That flower embellishment is gorgeous too. There is no such thing as a mistake when you craft. Enjoy your day.

I love this and it's a fab sentiment too. No more driving into paths of 747s then yet (I know you didn't but I've got visions of Bruce Willis urging you to drive faster to catch it at the moment - made me giggle just a bit heheehe)
Take care hun

Your mistake turned out great. I hope you were able to get your cart sorted out. Michaels can be irrating at times to say the least.
