Thank You Swing Card Using CTMH Dream Pop Paper,Cricut Artiste and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridges

 Hello all you wonderful people!!  I hope your weather is doing better now and hopefully the winter is behind all of you; at least in most of the US.  Overseas - I do not know their weather.  It has been beautiful spring weather here in Southern CA.  It was hot for several days and then got cooler for a while. 

I decided to create another Swing card from the Cricut Artiste Cartridge with my CTMH Dream Pop paper and a white card base.  These are such fun cards to create.  I was trying something different this time.  I know it is easy to create one with CTMH double sided design paper; but I wasn't sure what it would look like with to start with plain white card stock.  I don't think it is too bad; but I love the ones with lots of color. This is very simple but with a little color.  I hope you enjoy it.

    1. Oops. I am sorry Danni. I had a butterfly to begin with and changed it to a dragonfly. Sorry. I can remove it from my blog if you would like. I was just thinking of flutter by. LOL!! It does flutter by. Let me know if you want me to remove it and if you need to remove it from your blog - I understand. Hope you had a great Mother's Day. Hugs, Gloria
