Uniquely You flower card made using the Artiste cartridge and the June stamp of the month.

Hello, friends!

Today's card is made using the Artiste cartridge and the June Stamp of the Month called Flowering Bunch.

This card was very easy to throw together. However, I kept looking at it thinking it needed something else, but never could figure out what that something is was. I cannot get enough of the pattern of the cuttlebug folder I used! I keep seeing similar patterns in home decor items and in fabric. TRIPLE love it!

Cardstock used is from Close To My Heart (butercup, sweet leaf, lagoon, white, and crystal blue).
I used the stamp of the month and Close To My Heart inks (creme brule and topiary).
I used my cuttlebug and an embossing folder from the Decorative Tiles set.
For the inside of the card I used lagoon and creme brule ink.


This week's prize is the Create A Critter 2 cartridge.
