A new Niece and Just Buggin Challenge 8

Just buggin challenge this week is a card with using a die cut. My brother and his wife have just had their third little baby girl, Phoebe Josephine joined the world on the 21st October, weighing in at 8lb 8 - Mum and baby doing well.
So, my card is for them and my two nieces Olivia and Amelia. I sized my card and then found the centre point. Using the centre point buttong on the Cricut I cut out the circle. I then cut out the circular mount to put around it. I stamped my image on to some tracing paper I had and coloured it in and then stuck it behind the opening. I then glued on the sparkly beads which I purchase from a fabulous e bay shop.

I added an extra section inside to put the welcome on (again using the Cricut to cut out the letters) and then the last double page is for my greeting which I have yet to add. Again, all the circles and the main flower was cut out on the Cricut. I added some flowers that I won from Papertrey Ink a while ago with some buttons (these have been so useful - thanks ladies) and more half beads.
The colours are really rich but due to poor light they are not showing up great on the pictures but I hope they will be pleased with the card but with the postal strike I am not sure when they will get it - they live in America !
Have a fabulous weekend everyone and crafty hugs to you all - I am off to Jo's opening house this afternoon for a nice bit of home made cake and a bit of drooling over stampin up goodies - can't wait.
