Tip of the Day.  Save mega bucks by using you Cricut cartridges for flourishes.  I spent $25.95 for one flourish die and decided I would pull out my Cricut and find flourishes on my old carts that work!  I used Cindy Loo Cricut Cart for my flourishes and made them look like hearts.  I discovered that just about every page of the Cindy Loo Cart has flourishes!  Great discovery!

 I stamped the background of the focal image with "Bring the Bling" with a vry light ink by Memento called "Desert Sand" and then used Stickles on the spiral design.  I then used my Cuttleug to emboss the base card layer.   I used Cindy Loo Cricut Cart for my flourishes.  I put them together to form a heart and added pearls. 

I hope you have a fabulous day and weekend.  Thank you for stopping by.  Come back soon.  I will post the new Color Me Creative Challenge  Sunday.
