Birthday Card Using Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and CTMH Huntington Paper

 DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #84- Fall Colors

Hello to all my wonderful followers as well as visitors.  I am so happy to be able to have time to create cards and scrapbook pages.  I hope everyone is making time to be creative.  I feel it is very important to my overall sense of well being.  I feel better when I have made someone something; and get so excited waiting to see how they react to my latest creation. 
It is time for another fabulous week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Challenge 84 - Fall Colors.  We would love to have your enter this challenge and hopefully become one of the winners.  If you would like to be a Guest Designer on our blog; please just add GDT behind your name to enter.  
I created a gorgeous Gatefold card - sorry - have to brag.  I love this card!  I was very impressed with it when I got finished.  I have a major challenge when creating for the male species.  LOL!  I started creating my brother-in-law a card for his birthday; but as I was getting ready to add the sentiments; my intuition told me this card was for my husband, not my brother-in-law.  My husband's birthday is on Halloween.  I know he is going to love this card.  Now, I have started working on another card for my brother-in-law and it is going to be perfect for him.  LOL!  I will be sharing it in two weeks for Tammy's Scrapin Corner, as well.
I used a digital stamp by Eureka - Mallard for my image.  I love this image and have been wanting to use it for several months.  I actually took pictures of Mallards at the park the other day to try to see how they look before coloring this.  LOL! 
Card at an angle to show you how it is made.

    1. Thanks so much Sharla for dropping by and for joining my followers. I joined a Design team; which is what forced me to learn other folds. I have learned so much by being part of a DT. It has been an awesome experience and I suggest it for everyone who wants to grow in their creativity. I would have never started doing Digital stamps if not for my first DT assignment. Have a fabulous week! Hugs, Gloria
