Birthday Card Using Art by Miran Classy Cheryl and NEW Cricut Flower Market Cartridge

Hi friends!  I hope you are staying cool and enjoying your summer; or whatever season it is where you are.  It is really hot here in Southern CA and staying that way.  

It's time for another Art by Miran Challenge 65.  We would love to have you enter our Art by Miran blog challenges; which are always Anything Goes.  This is your chance to win free Art by Miran digis.  Take a look at all the fabulous creations by the DT.  

I have created a birthday card using Art by Miran Classy Cheryl.  I also used the NEW Cricut Flower Market cartridge; that just came out August 1st.  I love it.  This is the first flower I have created with it.  I love these cute little bows.  

I would also like to remind you of the Art by Miran Monthly Progressive Challenge.  We have this fabulous digi for free to those who entered last month with the July image.  If you haven't been part of this wonderful challenge; visit our Facebook page, request to join, purchase the discounted image for August Progressive challenge and enter.  The following month you will qualify for the next free image.  It is a fabulous way to build your collection of Art by Miran images. She is super talented and all her images are gorgeous.  See the first post on Facebook group for more information.  Don't forget to drop by our Facebook Page to see all of the DT's gorgeous creations using this months digi.
