You've Made a Difference

Time for Cricut ABC's!  What's that?  Well, I have Cricut cartridges I haven't used EVER or very little, and I've decided to challenge myself to use them from A - Z.  I'm not going to use all my A's before moving on to a B.  So tomorrow I will be working with a cartridge that starts with the letter B.  HMMMMMM???????  Provided I get time to hideout in my craft room!

Today, for letter 'A', I used A Child's Year cartridge.  Three different cuts!!

The colors I used are from The Color Dare challenge! 
Color Dare #99
Basic Gray
Cherry Cobbler
Marina Mist

edit:  I was told that my card also qualifies for The Sentimental Sunday challenge!!  Thank you Cheryl!

I made this card for someone special in my life!  I can't say who; so it will be a surprise!  I hope she likes it!

Here's what I came up with:

Background layer was cut at 5 1/4"
Tag layers were cut at 1 1/2"
Silouette image and shadow was cut at 3"

Card Base: SU Marina Mist 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:  White 4" X 5 1/4"   
Other Cardstock / Paper:   Cherry Cobbler, Basic Gray, Basic Gray DP
Ink: Marina Mist
Stamps:  Verve 'Because of You'
Accessories:  Cuttlebug & Swiss Dots and Stylized Flowers embossing folders, Marina Mist ribbon, Iridescent Medium, Cricut & A Child's Life cartridge

Thanks so much for visiting me while I am
Hiding in My Craft Room!
