Arigatou (Thank You) Card

I....seriously.....LOVE MY CRICUT EXPLORE!?!  Thank you wonderful hubby for my upgrade!?!  I love the simple fact I can cut my fonts AND I love that the cuts are so PRECISE!!!

I created this card for the Fatabulous Cricut Challenge - Challenge #223 Sketch Challenge.  I made a slight adjustment to the challenge, I rotated the sketch, teehee. =P

Here's the sketch:
Card Recipe 
Plant-s - Pagoda Cricut Cartridge (I only used the shadow of the plant)
Arigatou (written in Hiragana) - one of my fonts, cut by the Cricut Explore
Circles - George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge
Various Hanko Designs Washi Paper (all the washi came from my scrap pile)

CHECKOUT the detail of the Cricut Explore and of Shin-Shin!!!

Look how thin this cut is!  If I did this on my Expression...ugh...I dread the thought.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Beautiful card. Love how you interpreted the sketch, turning it vertical instead of horizonital. Thanks for linking to our challenge this week at FCCB. Kim
