Paper Roses

At FCCB, the challenge is "Paper Roses" and since I need two Mother's Day cards SOON I thought I would get one done using my Cricut. The cartridges I used are Mother's Day (sentiment) and Mother's Day Bouqet (flower). I cut 5 petals of the same image in 5 different sizes, then arranged them on a embossing folder & embossed. Here is my Project:

Supplies Used:
Cricut Cartridges Mother's Day, Mothers Day Bouqet
DCWV Damask Paper-Black Currant Stack
Recollection Pearls-Michaels
Offray Off white ribbon-JoAnns
Black and Red Cardstock-Coordinations

These colors suit my Mom perfectly-she's pretty much black & white, with a dose of femininity with the damask and pearls! The red is a private joke about her temper!

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
Twisted Tuesday Challenges
My Sheri Crafts Mother's Day Challenge
Cardz TV There's no other Like My Mother Challenge
BBTB2 Mother's Day Challenge
Cut It Up Mother's Day Challenge

AND! I still can't upload pictures from my regular browser, FireFox. I'm having to use Internet Explorer and it's not user friendly for me. If anyone knows of a fix, please please please let me know!
