Birthday Card Using Art By Miran digi with Cricut Art Philosophy & Cricut Artbooking Cartridges

Hello friends.  We finally had pouring rain here in Southern CA; and it was awesome.  It came with thunder and lightning which is very rare for here.  I enjoyed it.  It didn't last long enough for me.  It was supposed to last a few days and it was only one day.  The rain was heavier in the mountains; and I know there was flooding in some areas.

It has taken me a couple weeks to create this card.  LOL!  I couldn't figure out which embellishments I wanted to use on this card; so I tried many dies and cut a lot of paper; but nothing seemed to fit; until my new Cricut Cartridge arrived; so that gave me some new ideas. 

I have started using my print and cut feature on the Cricut Explore for cutting my digis; as I did this one.  It cuts perfectly.  I do not have any cutting skills; so this feature is working out great for me.  I use it as often as I can.  

Art By Miran Maria Mariposa is the free digi from the July Progressive Facebook Challenge. You can still buy her at a reduced price; but I got her free by entering Part 1 of the Progressive Facebook Challenge.  Check it out.  I try to enter every month; so I can build my digi supply.  LOL!  It is so much fun.
