Cricut Explore Just A Note card












I used the Ariana paper pack (BTW, this is my favorite paper pack from the new catalog) and the coordinating chipboard compliments.


This is the inside of the card. When this card is sent out to someone, I will add a little bit of Colonial White cardstock and then stamp it. Isn't this paper gorgeous though! It is so Anna Griffin.









To win:








 Have a MAGICAL Monday!
