Whimsical Anna Griffin card

Hello, friends!
Cricut Whimsical Anna Griffin card
Today, I have a fun card that I made using the Cricut Anna Griffin Elegant Embellishments cartridge (that is a real mouthful). I love an elegant Anna Griffin project as much as the next lady. However, this time when I decided to use this new cartridge I thought it would be interesting to mix it up a little. Making this card more whimsical than the usual all done up Anna concoction would be a challenge, but was so much fun! 

To simplify, I used all solid color cardstock. I wanted to use several cuts, but didn't want to make this super fussy with lots of patterns. 

I used the Have a Happy Day stamp set (pictured below) for the sentiment. This set is one of my favorites from the new catalog! Isn't it adorable?

Pretty card and the plain card stock is nice. Forgot how pretty and elegant a project can be absent patterned paper. Thanks for reminding us.

Great way of showing us that just because it says "elegant" doesn't mean we can't mix it up a little :)
