For my fun project I thought I would make a Celebrate Card. Its the prefect card to honor our love ones. I created this fun card using Cricut "Creative Holiday Cards" cartridge. I have to say when I seen this cartridge I knew I had to have it. Its a great card that celebrate all the major Holidays. You'll be seeing more cards using this cart soon. I use a fun embossing folder called African Batik. The sentiment is from Verve Stamp: Poppy Birthday. I used some fun gems to give it that extra sparkle. I really like the over all look of my card. Happy Dia De Los Muertos to my love ones!!
