Encouragement Card Using Cricut Artiste Cartridge

Hi fellow crafters.  Hope everyone is doing well and having a fantastic week.  It is still hot here in Southern CA; but hopefully we will have cooler weather real soon.  I created this card for my mother.  I found cardstock with beautiful designs of butterflies and bird cages that I had to have.  It is a ready to use design for those quick and easy cards you need when you don't have much time.  You can't really see it clearly; but it has sparkles all over it.
