You're tweet card made using the Artiste cartridge and the April Stamp of the month.

 Hello, friends!

Today I have a card made using the April Stamp of the Month and the Artiste cartridge.  This month's stamp coordinates with the Artiste cartridge and is so much fun! If you are someone who likes having all of the stamp sets that coordinates with the cartridges, make sure you get your hands on this one!

 For this card I used embossing powder that make the detail from the stamp stand out a little bit more. I always forget to use this technique, but love the effect. I really should do this more!

The 'sun' and 'bird' shapes are from the stamp set.
This sentiment is also from the stamp of the month set.

 I will be back tomorrow with a project made using the Simple cards cartridge!

Your card is so sweet and precious I love the colors and your papers. You just are so talented and always create something that is so special.

Love your card, Courtney! I love how you dry embossing the Artiste cut pieces--it really enhanced the design! You should enter your card into the rose blossoms garden spot this week--their focus is the Happy Birthday key from the Artiste cartridge. Here is a link for you:
