My Exploring Cricut Day and a Christmas Hop Winner

Hello Crafty Friends,
Today is my day to share at Exploring Cricut. I made this birthday card for a dear friend that I have known for many years (we started teaching ESE together 13 years ago) and I gave it to her at a surprise birthday party. I no longer work at that same school, so it was great to see all the people from my previous school. Hoping we will all be able to get together again real soon.

My Exploring Cricut project...
I used this sketch from The Sweet Stop. Be sure to check out their sketches (they post a new one every Saturday). They are fabulous!
 I created the frame from a strand of green beads. I used Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive, which works amazingly. I did not make the flowers. They are from a pick. I cut the wire off and then flattened the back.
