This card is for Atlantic Hearts. I have so many birthdays coming up in September and October that I hope that I can get all the cards made. This card is made on the Cricut Explore using the rectangle frame from Close to My Heart Artbooking and the lace corner from Picturessque. The center of the rectangle is made from the piece that was cut out of the rectangle only turned over. I used the Daisy White ink Close to My Heart stamp Joyful Birthday Occasions using CTMH Inkpad Topiary. I added rick rack and a lace butterfly.
I added a flower for her hair and sequins and glitter to the dress. The straps of the dress and the tiara are made with rhinestones. The background is striped wallpaper. All other cardstock is from Close to My Heart through Katie's Corner. The writing on the front is Mirror Mirror who is fairest of them all. (Not enough room to include on the wall.) On the inside is You Are Of Course. Happy Birthday. The Happy Birthday is from the stamp Joyful Birthday Occasions, and the color of the ink pad is Topiary.
This card is going off to Bitten by the Bug 2 ~ Dressing Up and Exploring Cricut and More ~ Happy Birthday with sparkle!

Great granddaughter's birthday is this week, so I made her a card to represent her on her horse at the show's campground. I used the Cricut Explore Rearing Cowgirl from the cartridge YeeHaw.
By the way, I have the yearly subscription for the Cricut Images and I just love it. I don't think that there is an image that I could want that isn't there.
I used Close to My Heart paper from Katie's Corner for the girl and horse: black, saddle, sky blue, pacifica and colonial white. Since my great-granddaughter has red hair, I traced around the hair part from the pattern on the colonial white, cut it out and colored it with colored pencils, blending oak brown and holiday red. (Pencils are old so may not be same names as now.) I did the same for the cowgirl hat, but used sky blue marker to color the hat. Exact match to the sky blue paper used in the shirt. I used a barn siding paper for the background. I also put rhinestones on the hat and shirt.

I loved her Cricut Explore so much, I came home and ordered one for me. I also ordered quite a lot of the new products from the Close To My Heart Annual Inspirations Catalog from Katie's Corner. When everything arrives I am gong to have such a fun time!
I'm sending this off to Fantabulous Cricut Challenge ~ Bug Out!
