Please be kind

I've made my very first card using my new Cricut Create......


It leaves a lot to be desired, but for my first attempt, I'm quite pleased.
The scroll background and butterfly are from 'Straight From The Nest'.
(I'm not 100% sure I did that butterfly right)!
There is SO much to play with on that cartridge, I didn't know what to choose first!
I think I'll cut another scroll square out and scan it into my PC then make it into different shapes using SCAL.
(When I learn how to, that is)! LOL

I can't wait to see what you think of my debut Cricut card.

This card is beautiful! I have only used my cricut a few times. Maybe this will give me a push to use it more often.
