Design Team Call - Crafting with Cristina

Hello Everyone,
Hope you are all having a great Friday evening! I wanted to share with all of you a card that I made specifically for a Design Team Call over on Cristina's Blog While visiting her blog last weekend, I saw that she was having a Design Team Call.  Needless to say, I was super excited!! I have never been on a Design Team but have always wanted to be on one ever since I discovered they existed!  What a great opportunity it would be to work along so many other crafty individuals and get to share your own crafty creations with others as well. Just a few weeks ago I was in 2 blog hops and I must say I was hooked! So I know making a special project for a challenge blog as a Design Team Member on a weekly or bi-weekly basis would be totally awesome!  Gee, did I just give away that I'm a child of the 80'  Well, here is my card.  I decided to make a Birthday card because seems you never have one ready whenever you need one.  Plus, I have a few birthdays coming up soon so I figured it will definitely get used.  I just got the Elegant Edges Cartridge a few weeks ago and I knew I had to use it for this card.  So here are the specifics:

*Elegant Edges Cartridge: My cardbase is @ 5.65" (I used my Gypsy to weld together). I used the "Frame Feature" and cut the frame @ 5.00".  I really love this feature, so many ideas are coming to mind already!
*Gypsy Wanderings: Sentiment @2.85" (used the shadow feature) and Flowers cut @ 1.50" & 1.00" (used the hide feature on my Gypsy)
*Solid Cardstock: Card base (Bazzill -French Vanilla) & Recollections (Yellow & Pink)
*Patterned Paper: Doodlebug
*Pearl Embellishments: Recollections
*White Gel Pen

I really liked the way it turned out, hope you all like it too :0)  Wish me luck and I will keep you updated.
