Friend Card Using Cricut Artiste Cartridge

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #45 - Punch Card.
Hello to all my wonderful crafting buddies, friends and family.  I am too excited to concentrate because my mom is coming on Sunday and will be here for 2 months.  I know we will have a lot of fun.  I am just a little worried about trying to keep up with all my responsibilities and still have lots of time to spend with her doing fun things.  I didn't have my CTMH business when she was here the past few years.  I have gotten a lot busier in the past year.  We always run around a lot showing her the sites, eating out, etc.  She is 79 yrs old and I have to push her in a wheelchair when we go out and about.  I am just grateful she is still with us and that I am blessed with this time together each year.
It's time for another great week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Challenge #45 - Punch Card.  We are pleased to announce our Guest Designer Dayana Marin who is joining us this week.  Click on her name to see all her wonderful creations.  If you would like to be a Guest Designer, please put GDT after your name when you enter.  Our sponsor is SK Digi's

I am using an SK Digi titled "Margarita"; which is the cute flower.  I love this image and had so much fun coloring this image and creating my card.  You can use this image for any occasion; so it was hard to pick just one.  

Inside Card - Green more the color above, lighter and less yellow.

Supplies used to create this card are:
Die Cuts - Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
Card Base - CTMH Sweet Leaf (It is a lighter more mellow green, top picture true color)
