Flower Honor

Hello Crafty Friends,

Hoping you are having a great day. I decided to make a card today in honor of Diana's (DL.Art) birthday coming up (this one is not for her...that is a surprise still). Her favorite color is green, so I wanted to use that as the main color. The splash of orange is my daughter's favorite color. They do look good together.  

I really like the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge and I seem to overlook using it. There are so many options (see below) for layering and framing.

This weekend is going to be extremely busy. Kyle moves home from college for only 3 weeks, we set up for the Eagle Ceremony Saturday morning, the Pampered Chef party is Saturday afternoon, and Sunday is the Eagle Scout Ceremony. What a way to end summer vacation!

Time to get back into a routine!

Stay Creative,
