This week on the Cricut Circle Blog the challenge is to use the French Manor cartridge and some pearls or gems to make a project. I used my Gypsy to weld two of these pretty ovals to make my card base. The Eiffel Tower is also cut from French Manor. I added some clear gems and I cut Merci from Create a Critter. I was suprised this cut some cleanly at 1/2". This beautiful background paper is from Anna Griffin.
