For Someone Special Card Using Art By Miran Gentle Astrid with Cricut Artistry Cartridge

Hello friends.   I hope everyone is doing well and finding time to craft.  It is starting to get hot here again.  I thought I heard a few days ago that there were snow storms up North again.  I can't believe this weather.

It is time for another Facebook Anything Goes Challenge with option - Professional.  I used Art by Miran Gentle Astrid as a Florist.  I hope you enjoy her.  

As You Like It Challenge is having a Bingo challenge.  I chose Fussy/Fancy/ Gems /Ribbon.  I love adding gems and ribbons to my cards.  I also like adding layers and unique or unusual dies to make them pop.
