The card that almost wasn't!

I made a card destined for my bff but to use in this challenge blog at The Paper Cabana I am a part of so the theme was basic colors like in a crayon box.  But when I looked up the basic colors it only mentioned red, yellow, and blue... so off I went to create... this is NOT what I came up with but was my plan B with the parts from the original card.  Have you had that happen before???

To see the project and tutorial for what I DID make for that challenge go here.

This card was easy with the parts I had already punched and cut with my Cricut.  I punched the scalloped square and had stamped and embellished the Celebrate today.  I had the dragonflies I had cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy cart and put together for the "other card"... and I wanted to use them.  The red oval was to be inside the other card and worked out perfect as a background to make the red in "celebrate today" pop!  The "Celebrate Today" stamp is CTMH and embellished with real red ink and a glitter blue pen by sakura.

Thanks for looking!  Hope you can be inspired to use some of your pieces and parts to make something whole!  Have a blessed day ;)  Kathi


  1. What an adorable card it turned out to be.

  2. Very cute! You seem to like this color combination, huh?

  3. So pretty! I love those dragonflies, especially with their wings lifted like that. I'm sure your friend loved it!


Thanks for taking time to comment. Have a blessed day!
