S Card

I'm sorry folks, I haven't been around lately, I have actually been busy!
Busy crafting, that is!  I've started 'Project Life' but more on that another time.  Today I wanted to share an 'S' card with you. 
As the Americans say... I had some 'happy mail'.  That is my CRICUT Artiste cartridge arrived (so expensive! But SO worth it) and I immediately started to explore this lovely, lovely cartridge.
My happy mail...

And my first 'Artiste' card...

The card is cut at 5 1/2", and I used 'TERESA COLLINS' 'Fabrication' papers, I don't what I'm going to do when these run out, I use them all the time!  I used them for this project because they are a really good weight and are double sided.  I cut out the matching 'accent' shape (p. 33) in varying sizes and adhered these to the front and inside.  The stamp is from the CLOSE TO MY HEART stamp set 'D1529', which comes as part of the 'Artiste' bundle.  The button and flowers are from my stash.
The nice thing about this cut is that at, 5 1/2 inches you can get two cards from one sheet of 12" x 12".  Love these colours!

Challenges, yeah... why not!
