CC Weekly Challenge card

This is the card I made for the Weekly CC challenge.  We were to make something using a cart you got with your machine.  I used Plantin Schoolbook and designed my project on the Gypsy.  The card is 5 x 7.  The blue piece I cut at 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 and embossed with Divine Swirls or Coredinations paper which I then sanded.  The first cut on the Cricut was the green which is 4 x 6 and the circle in the center is 3.5.  Then  I went to page 69 for the scenery cuts.  I cut the flowers (1) and the grass (2 x) at .75.  The houses, trees and mountains were cut at 1.50.  all the cuts are 4.25 long to fill the circle.  I also did one more mountain cut same size flipped.  The letters for title also PS are 1 inch.  The tag is from page 71  italic tag which has two holes.  I made my own shadow.  I chalked all the cuts and then glued the pieces together to form the scene.  I added a few MS punch stars from white glitter paper,  I added brads on tag, and stickles for flowers.
