Birthday Card Using CTMH Chantilly and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #57 -  Recipe - 1 image, 2 dies and 3 embellishments.

Hi to all you fellow crafters.  I finally finished my tax preparation and we filed Tuesday.  It isn't usually this stressful for me; but I didn't keep up with things the way I should have.  There is a lesson to keep up on things this year so I don't have all of this stress at one time.  I hope everyone is having a fabulous week and making time to craft.
 
We have had wonderful weather here in Southern CA.  I haven't gotten out to enjoy it much; but plan to get out there soon.  I got far behind on everything while my mom was here; but it was more important to spend time with her than to clean house or keep up on mail, etc.  Now it is catch up time. 
 
It is another fabulous week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #57 -  Recipe - 1 image, 2 dies and 3 embellishments.  Have fun and take time to create something for our challenge.  We would love for you to join us this week.  Our sponsor this week is QKR Stampede.  Be sure to visit their shop and check out their blog challenges too.  They have a lot of great Digi stamps as well as rubber ones too; so you have a choice of either one or both.

Our Guest Designer this week is Julie Wells.  Be sure to check out her blog for her wonderful creations.  If you would like a chance to be a Guest Designer; please add GDT behind your name when you enter. 
 
I chose QKR Rose Label this week for my image.  I didn't realize there is also a square one like this.  I love this image and you can make it any size that you want with the Digi   I couldn't get the true colors for the purple.  This Gypsy is a gorgeous purple color; not as light as the inside picture but not as dark as the outside picture.  I didn't realize I had two different colors for the inside pink dies until after I had glued them down.  When I tried to remove; it was tearing the card; so I decided to leave it as it was.  My flower on the outside is a pretty pink fuchsia; but it looks red on this picture.
