Purple Valentine

I have yet another Valentine, but I think this card could work for any occasion. I'll admit I am not a huge fan of glitter, so this is something new for me. I like how it turned out and maybe I will do it again soon. This card is cut from Cricut cartridge Damask Decor. I pop dotted the glitter birds, which may not be noticeable by my picture. I finished it off with an embossed background and a bit of ribbon. This was a simple card and didn't take to long to make, I might make it again, maybe for a Birthday?

I want to invite you all to come back tomorrow for my first ever guest designer spot with Top Tip Tuesday. I have been so excited and can't wait for it to go up tomorrow!

See you soon,

  10. OMG! You must totally think I scrap-lifted my card design from you! Lol. I read your comment on my blog so I went searching for your similar card you mentioned & I was like "oh no! he probably totally thinks I copied him!" I can assure you this is my first time to your blog, lol. I guess it's not the first time two people have used the same Cricut cut?! Your work is fab & so I'm now a follower of your's too!
