Rose on Purple

The Die Cuttin' Divas are having a sketch challenge this week. This is the sketch to follow.

This is my card based on the sketch.

This is a standard 4.25 X 5.5" card.   I started with the rose.  It is from the Sophie cartridge and is listed as Rose 1 on page 37 the image and shift image cut at 3".  I took the outline cut and ran it through the Xyron and hit it with some of the Dazzling Diamonds from Stampin' Up.  The leaves are from page 64 and are part of the Flower 6 image also cut at 3".  I used the shift image and hid the flower and only cut the leaves.  This was really easy to do with Cricut Craftroom.  I took my Martha Stewart scoreboard and scored down the center of the leaves to make them more realistic. I learned this tip from Melanie at  Everyday Cricut.  I started with the card base at 4.25 X 5.5" and each layer is .25 inch smaller.  So the green striped layer is 4 X 5.25" and the top purple layer is 3.75 X 5".

Now for the rest of the story:
 My Sophie cartridge stopped working in my Expression 2.  It comes up but when I pick an image it goes back to the screen that says Expression 2 and then shows a blank mat.  I was devastated because I LOVE the Sophie cartridge.  So before I called Provo Craft, I thought I would do a little experiment and see if it would cut from Cricut Craftroom.  So I went to Cricut Craftroom and put the rose on my virtual mat and as you can see it worked! 
The Lace "doily" is from the Art Philosophy cartridge, it is the shift on the Font Layer option on page 65. I cut it at 4.25".  Then finished my card with a while lace ribbon and the green ribbon.

Thanks for coming by and y'all come back soon,
