Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge!

 Well everyone here's my Cricut Circle Challenge for the month. Each month there is a challenge and this month it was to scraplift one of the Designers projects from the Circle Blog and I chose a project made by Nancy Damiano. You need to use two or more Cricut Cuts and you are also required to use at least two of the sponsors products and I chose to use Bazzill cardstock, and My IRock with bling, and some pearl brads, which is from Imaginese. It is a traditional Kissing Ball and I just fell in Love with it when I saw it and knew I would eventually make one, didn't know when, but when this challenge came up it was perfect timing.
 Nancy used the Cuttlebug Quilling kits and since I didn't have them (and couldn't find them when I had went to the city) I made the flowers using the Paisley Cartridge and layered them. Some of the print papers are old Music sheets. I also used some Fern Leaves from the Serenade and Wild Card Cartridges.
Boy it sure did take quite awhile, It seems like I cut a zillion flowers and then curled them and each layer has two petals so each flower has three layers and six petals, Wow, that's alot of petals! I almost didn't get it finished, I thought I had more time, I just can't believe this month is almost over, Wow, I better keep track of the time or it will be Christmas before I know it, LOL! 
Well here are some of the products I used from the sponsors and.................................................. 
 Here is Nancy's inspiration of the Traditional Kissing Ball. Isn't it so Pretty! I still love this and when I find those quilling kits I will do the actual one like this, See mine is flatter and I used bigger flowers but I still like it. So wish me luck and if I win I will be sure to let you all know. Thanks for looking and have a great rest of the weekend!
