BBTB2: Cricut Art Nouveau Butterfly

Yesterday was the best day, the jasmine in my neighbor's backyard and my lemon tree are in full bloom, making the smells absolutely intoxicating.  The weather was the hottest day yet this year, and we are all looking forward to the weather heating up the pool, so we can swim.  I planted my annuals and rearranged a few things in the yard and it's beginning to look like my vision.

My card today is a design based on our theme at Bitten By the Bug2 for this week, insects, bugs, butterflies, and bees, your choice (selected by Emily, from Mollie's Motif.   I stepped a little out of my norm and brought up the Art Nouveau and Art Deco cartridges.  This card will go to a good friend celebrating a big milestone birthday next week.  I decided not to put a sentiment on the front, but will decorate the inside with a big number 60! hahaha.   Come and join our challenge at BBTB2 and link up your insect/bug Cricut creations.

  2. Gorgeous card, Maureen. This is such a pretty dragonfly and the label behind it really highlights it so beautifully. I wish it was warm here. We are have chilly, rainy weather. I need some warm, sunshine!

  3. I love those cartridges; have them both. This card is absolutely gorgeous!

    Thanks for joining us for our Wings challenge at Cut it Up!
