Life Is Beautiful

I sure enjoyed making this card. I found a new to me challenge site called The ColourQ. I joined in using this week's colors and came up with this little ditty:) I have really loved the Spellbinders pennant dies, but I just can't buy everything I like and it dawned on me that several of my Cricut carts have some very pretty cuts that give a similar look. One of my very favorite carts is Storybook, which is what I used to cut the pink frame. The red die is the cut out that is left from cutting the gift box on Wild Card. I have really liked using bits of lace and stitching them on to my cards lately. The image is from CHF and is from the set, Ornamental Beauty.I stamped the image twice so I could cut the inner circle out and pop it up...I added a few MS punched butterflies and some flowers and bling. I hope you like it:) It's Christmasy colors without a Christmas theme...Have a very Merry Christmas!
