Hearty Congrats Anniversary Card...

Hey Ya'll,
Sorry our posts have been so thin lately.  It's been such a busy time lately, but I have some great projects to share over the next couple of weeks!
I have a new card I made with the Everyday Pop-Up Cartridge and some Theresa Collins Paper that we got from when we ordered the Damask Decor Cartridge.  I had never used any of Theresa Collin's papers before and WOW!  This kit is fantastic!  I was really impressed with how well it worked with Cricut.  (I used the E-2 for this one.)
 I used a white stock for the base card and then used a solid black mat with a 1/8th inch border.  I then used this Gray and Pink flocked paper from Theresa Collins.  The Hearty Congrats is from the Everyday Pop-Up Cards Cartridge.  I used TC paper, white and pink solid paper for all the layers.  Everything was inked in a black ink.  I also used a part of a heart lace doily in the background.
 The flowers are also from this cartridge.  They were cut from scraps of the different papers so that everything coordinates.  I used glossy effects here and there and the I-Rock to add a little glitter to the project.
The inside was kept very simple with a basic white mat and just a couple of flowers and a flourish cut.  BTW, the flourish came from Cindy Loo.

This card is going to our friends for their anniversary.  I sure hope they like it!  It sure was fun working with these papers and I will certainly be getting more.  Thank you so much for visiting today!  Can't wait to get the pictures cut and share with you a massive card I made for everyone to sign at work!  So Proud!  Stay tuned!
