Happy Birthday

The weekend is almost over, doesn't it make you sad?
Happy Sunday everyone! I am so happy to be back in my craft room and creating..

I am sharing 2 cards with you today that I created using Pinque Peacock Product and the Cricut Explore. This was the first time I used it, had a bit of trial and error but it's a simple enough machine, at least for what I used it for today.

This card was created using the Random Collection by Crate paper, I paired it with this FABULOUS yellow Elegant Floral Pleated  Petal you can find it in the Pinque Peacock Shop HERE.

The Arrows was an extra piece I had left over from when I tried out my art booking cartridge, I used some Tim Holtz Distress paint, matted it on black card stock and then layered the card. I intentionally left the bottom 1/4 (or less) of the card without design I just like how the sentiment looked that way. I cut the sentiment with the cricut explore. (this was my 2nd project with the Explore)

I paired this lovely green felt popper with my first go at the Cricut Explore, I used a Gold Metallic pen and had it write out this St. Patricks Day themed card front.. I then colored in with Copic markers in green some of the white space. I added some 3 Girl Jam Crinkle Ribbon, but I love the pop this green felt popper gives the card!

Happy Crafting!
