Purple, Green AND Sketches Challenge at Cooking with Cricut

Hello everyone. Today is Purple, Green AND Sketches Challenge Day over at Cooking with Cricut!  For this weeks challenge I made used the colors and the card sketch to make a card for my mom.  She stayed at my house with my 4 children while my hubby and I went away for our 10 year wedding anniversary a couple of weeks ago so I wanted to let her know how appreciative we are. 

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

I used Art Philosophy to cut the postage stamp like frame/matte (square 6-page 24), then I hand cut the square on top of it in a lighter purple.  I then cut the flower circle cutout from the Square 5 Font Layer (shift key pushed)-page 63.  I thought that was such a pretty cut.  I added some bling to each of the openings in the cut.  I then added some green/white twine and a tag which was cut rectangle 5-page 35, inked the edges and stamped it with a stamp from Pink By Design Our Kids set.  I added a rhinestone to each side of the tag as well.

Now it's your turn! I hope you will head on over to Cooking with Cricut to enter your project! TFL.

Have a crafty day!
