Be -You- tiful card made using the Creative Cards cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today I have a card made using the NEW Creative Cards cartridge! This cartridge is ten tons of fun! You can make some really great cards and even use some of the elements on scrapbook pages or other projects.

When I saw this cut I thought I had to make the flowers red poppies. I am very happy how it turned out. I stepped out side of my comfort zone with the color palette, but it totally works!

I used a stamp set called Happy Thoughts from Close To My Heart for the sentiment.

I will be back tomorrow with a project made using the Simple Cards cartridge! See you then!

Cute card. Poppy, I believe. I am growing some poppy flowers with my 8 year old. Fun times.

I have a question about this cartridge. Every time I see the images of this cartridge, I find myself staring at the image on the top row, last picture. I, for whatever reason, can't figure it out! It looks like some sort of flowers or two fish kissing. Would you please share with me so I can sleep at night? Ha.
