Flourishes The Cut Above Challenge

What a fun challenge at Flourishes today.  We are to use die cuts, punches etc to make our card.  My Cheery Lynn XL stacker dies worked perfect for this challenge.  You don't need a larger machine to make these and this card is approximately 5.5 inches. I just scored and folded an 8.5x11 piece of cardstock and positioned the die a little above the top fold, ran it thru the cuttlebug and then added the extra die cuts.  I used the scalloped XL circles and the French pastry doily.  Some memories paper and lots of bling from Michaels. The stamp is from the new set, From the Desk of and I colored it with copics.  Sponged some soft blue around the edges and then used a cuttlebug folder to emboss it.
