Some people do long explanations about their cards. I guess I'm not going to on this one since I didn't write it down when I made it (shame on me) and I can't find the end I cut off that tells me what paper I used. I thought it was cute paper and had some of the aqua that matched, and used a polka dot from PTI Bitty Dots. I'm not even sure where I got the Cricut cuts from but there are lots of these shapes on various cartridges. I used a punch across the top.
