Vintage Birthday Card Using Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Hello friends.  It is another fabulous day to be alive!  I hope everyone is doing well.  Keep watching for Spring.  I am sure it is just around the corner.  Try to stay rested and keep warm to keep those colds away.

I am excited to share the next Digi Stamps 4 Joy  - Challenge 88 - Vintage.  This is my first Vintage card; and I think it turned out pretty good.  I had a lot of fun creating this; but it did take me longer than most cards do.  There are so many options when creating cards; that I had more trouble choosing what to add to it.  The bow is actually a burgundy color that matches the paper; but it doesn't look that color in this picture.  

I am entering this card in Path Of Positivity Challenge - Thoughtfulness challenge.  If you haven't checked this challenge out; be sure to take a look.  I created this card with love, positive energy and wanted it to mean a lot to the friend I am giving it to.  Wishing someone Happy Birthday and to have a grand year; is being thoughtful for that persons well being.  I love giving cards to family and friends.  It is my way of sending them love all year long.  What better way to cheer someone up then sending them a card to let them know you are thinking of them.
