A " Beautiful" Card

Welcome to my blog and thank you so much for stopping by! I am so thrilled to be a blogger, it is something I never thought I could do!!  And I am!
I would like to encourage you to try something new today.  I know how easy it is to stay within our comfort zones, however, I have found it so incredible to step outside my everyday box and jump into this whole new world of blogging and card making. I have realized how much I am challenging my brain to be creative, and that is a good thing!  And I am doing it one step at a time.

Today I was inspired to use  my Lacy Labels cricut cartridge. This label says "Beautiful". I love how this label turned out and I would recommend this cartridge to anyone who has a cricut machine. There are so many other labels to choose from. My pretty papers are all from Michael's, except for the strip with hearts which I made myself from a stampin up large roller.  I used both rhinestones, and buttons to embellish the card. I love the three buttons I used. If you look closely you will notice that one of the buttons has dots on is one of my favorite buttons. 

My hubby asked me what would I use this card for???  I think it would be a fun valentine's card, or it could be used as a thinking of you card, or a friendship card . Any other ideas?  Please leave them in my comments section.  Your comments do mean the world to me.  

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

  10. Wonderful card, Cathryn! I think it would be perfect for a Valentine's Day card - or to encourage a woman who is either feeling low about herself - or to congratulate her for doing something good for herself! I'm sure that when the time comes, you'll know just how to use your card. :)
