The last few days I have been working a lot more with my cricut.  Seems over the last few months I have been drawn more to using images and other details on my cards, and leaving all the cartridges that I have just sitting in a container doing nothing.   So I pulled a few out this week and tried to get back into the cricut groove.
I must say it was a little tough.  I got so used to scanning through all the wonderful digital images I have and building around to have to try and build a card around just die cuts was a lot trickier than I remember :)

But I think I pulled this card together pretty well :)  I used the New Arrival cartridge for almost everything on this card.  I love how the dark card stock really pops off the card with the light patterned paper on top of it.

For the banner, I cut out the squares and then glued them to the dark card stock.  Trimmed them to the size I wanted the banners to be and then cut the flagged ends.  The banners are then affixed with mounting tape to the card with the bows adhered at the ends.
The carriage is layered with a lighter pink card stock and a few white details.  I added a thin pink ribbon to the middle to jazz it up a little more.  The carriage is mounted on a layered frame cut from the Lacy Labels cartridge.  The white layer is then embossed with the Swiss Dots folder.
It's such an eye catching card.  I just love it!!
