Can you believe it, a Cricutless card!!!!  This is a super simple card and easy to mass produce.  My card base is a typical A2 size with a white layer and a DCWV background.  My stamp is from My Craft Spot "White Christmas".  My beautiful flower is a Fabric Splendid Swirl from Pinque Peacock.  The red ink is from Stampin Up.  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again tomorrow!!!!
