Just a Happy Friday Kinda Card!

Hello, my friends!

I've taken a little break from some DT projects to make this card. I really wanted to link up over at Twist of Faith Cards this week. You know it's one of my favorite places to participate! This week the sponsor is Digi Darla's. You know that's one of my favorites too! :o)

The challenge this week is Borders & Fancy Edges. I thought it was the perfect time to practice with my Cricut and the Elegant Edges cartridge. I managed to get exactly the size I wanted on the first try! lol I bought this butterfly stamp a long time ago and hadn't used it yet. It was just crying out to be embossed! Have you noticed that I seem to be into turquoise lately? Perhaps it's another favorite! I added a sentiment that is full of truth. We are all so blessed, aren't we? :o)

Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Cricut Cartridge: Elegant Edges;
Stamps: CTMH - Blessed, Inkadinkado - Butterfly;
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black;
Glitter Embossing Powder: Martha Stewart - Turquoise;
Ribbon: My Stash.

Those fancy curves on your border are beautiful. The embossed butterfly turned out so elegantly poised for flight.
