Birthday Card Using New CTMH Jubilee Paper and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

DT Project for The Squirrel and The Fox - Challenge 64 - Something Spooled

Hi to all my friends in Blogland!  I hope everyone is doing well.  It seems time goes faster and faster every day.  I feel like there aren't enough hours in the day to do all the things I want and need to do.  LOL!  

It is time for another great challenge The Squirrel and The Fox - Challenge 64 - Something Spooled. Our sponsor this week is Make It Crafty.  Be sure to check out their wonderful Digi stamps.  I have chosen Make It Crafty Lilli Faye for my image this week.  I fell in love with this one as soon as I saw it.  

I had some challenges with my markers this week; so it isn't as good as I would have liked it to be. Also, the colors did not photograph well.  The yellow butterflies and the yellow behind the angel is actually very light and soft; but on here; it is darker and bolder.  I took it with my camera and my IPhone; but neither one captured the true color. The IPhone was a better picture; so that is what I used.  I tried numerous times to adjust it; but the blue looked washed out whenever I got the yellow the actual color.
