Easter Wishes card made using the Folk Art Festival

Hello, friends!

I received a few questions about my Friday card's background, so I thought I would clear it up. I used a die from Papertrey Ink with my Anna Griffin Cuttlebug! Love my cuttlebug! Here is the link for the Quarterfoil die ==> https://www.papertreyink.com/pti-dies/papertrey-ink-cover-plate-quatrefoil-die/

Also, did you guys know that they are selling the Anna Griffin cuttlebug folders on Cricut.com? Well, they are! If you did not get your paws on some of them when HSN was selling them I recommend getting them now as they are FABULOUS! 

It's Monday, so that means it is Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge day! Today's theme is bunnies, so I made this sweet little card using the Folk Art Festival cartridge, the Matalasse Anna Griffin cuttlebug folder, and the Easter Wishes stamp set (which coordinates with the Art Philosophy cartridge).

I used Close To My Heart cardstock, Close To My Heart Chantilly patterned paper, and DCWV glitter cardstock.
