Birthday Card using Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and Pemberley Paper Packet

Hello to all you wonderful creators!!  I hope everyone is having a fantastic day!!  It is going to be nice in Sunny CA today; but gradually getting warmer every day this week.  I have out of town guests this week; but they are in San Diego for a few days.  I decided I better get something created before they get back.   

I created a birthday card that can be used for male or female.  I used the Pemberley paper packet; which has a lot of wonderful pattern choices for this Mojo Monday 250 card.  It was a little bit of a challenge for me with all these layers.  I needed a lot of different colors/patterns and using one of CTMH paper packets does make it easier; but this card has a lot of layers and shapes.  It was fun and I was up for the challenge.  This paper packet will still be available in our new August Idea Book for anyone who is wanting to purchase. 

Be sure and check out the retirement items on my last blog post.  Those  items are being retired and end July 31, 2012 as does all the free Perfect Pairs; which you can see under the Specials tab at the top of the page.
