Flower and Bee card

I made this in CCR, I think I have a love hate relationship with that program!  When it works I love it and when it doesn't I think it hates me!!  So I used a cart I've had forever but never used, I had to take the sticker off it to use it, (if the truth be told there are many carts like that here!).  Don't forget to flip one of the scallops before you weld them together, yes I'm speaking from experience I cut the card base out and was like what the heck?!  Nothing lined up, this scallop is cut oddly so you need to do that.
Made with the Live Simply lite cart.
scallops at 4.24" welded together I hide the center cutout and then did another one and hide the outer cutout
bee and flower at 2.5"
all the edges are inked and added pen work
center circle is on foam tape bee and flower on 2 layers of foam tape
This is for the circle challenge:
3cuts                                                     butterfly, bird or bug
3 patterned papers                               stitching machine, pen or hand
color yellow
Also for the circle color challenge

This is beautiful, Gwen!! I love the pretty papers and the shape!! I've had the same experience welding shapes into a card, forgetting to flip one :)

Super pretty. Love shaped cards even though I do not do them often. I always worry about envelopes!
