So adorable in purple and orange

Sometimes I wish there was more time in the day. I have recently been focusing on building a 1000 piece Final Fantasy X puzzle, and I have consequently had very little time to make cards. Sadly, it has been a little over a month since I have actually made a card.

Without much further ado, I present to you a card I quite like that I made today. The image is from Deviant Art courtesy of Yampuff. :) SO ADORABLE, no? It's one of my favorites ^^. I used this clear wrapping paper type stuff for the dotted background. I tried out my new Martha Stewart punch too for the square behind the image. :) I love this punch, and I have been looking for it for so long. It is called Cherish. I love it! I also embossed the square that she is laying on just for that little added touch. I also tried out the Bow Easy :) It took some time for me to figure it out but I finally got it.

1) KB Cute Monday - Something Cute
2) Cupcake - Favorite Cupcake - I chose Challenge #43 Something Sweet :)
3) There’s Magic in the Air - Birthday Card
4) Die Cut Dreams - Recipe
