birthday wishes

I have 3 birthdays this week, so I had to get busy making cards! Today's card is something I keep seeing pop up over different blogs. I think the original card came from Betsy Veldman (or at least that's where I saw it first).

Love, love love the kraft on kraft look! I used Walk in My Garden to cut out a few different sizes of daisies since I don't have a die cutting machine (although, with PTI selling all these fabulous dies, that might be next on my wish list!). Added a few colorful buttons, stamped a sentiment and I was done!

I won't tell you how long it took me to get my Cricut to cut right, though! Or to figure out how to actually use a cartridge! Since I bought SCAL, I don't think I've touched a cartridge!



Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Paper - Kraft
Ink - Scarlet Jewel
Stamps - Mega Mixed Messages
Other - Cricut Walk in My Garden, Vintage Buttons: Spring Moss, Lemon Tart, Scarlet Jewel, Plum Pudding

This looks great. I love the craft on craft too. I am jealous that you have a cricut and scal! If I ever get a whole room I will have one too:)
