Friendship/Thank You Card Using CTMH Ariana Paper Pack and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

GDT Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges - Challenge 15 - Anything Goes - Use A Stamp Or Digi On Your Creation

Hello friends/crafters.  How is everyone doing?  I am so excited and honored to be chosen as a Guest Designer for Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges.  This challenge should be very easy for all of you; just use a stamped image or Digi Image and you can enter this challenge.  Be sure to check out all the fabulous creations by the DT.  

I chose to do a simple card; although it took me longer than planned.  The colors were not what I wanted; so I had to change colors after already cutting out all the pieces.  The pictures didn't come as well as I wanted; because the colors are too light for the camera; therefore it makes them darker or changes them completely.  Sorry about that.  

I used my CTMH stamp set Fabulous You; which is one of my favorites.  I also cut the dies with Cricut Art Philosophy.  I love background dies; but I think I probably should have chosen a different paper for this background.  I hope you can see the heart in the die cut.  I love this bird with the ext and flourish.
