Dia de Los Muertos Birthday card!

This isn't a very good picture, but I love this card. My good friend Patty loves all things skulls and twisted. I used the Twisted Tea digital stamp from The Greeting Farm and some of last year's Halloween Paper (Lollipop Lizzy from the Hallowhimsy line by Imaginise) and my good ol' Copic markers, and viola! The perfect twisted birthday card. I cut the orange matting from the Storybook cartridge on my Cricut machine and punched it with a rectangle punch to run the ribbon through. I cheated a little because the bottom "ribbon" is a scrap of green paper left over from using a boarder punch on another project, but the purple ribbon on top is actually ribbon. (As you can tell by the bow.)

Berry shaped card

I made this card using the Hello Kitty Cartridge on my Cricut. It's very simple, the cartridge has a card feature on it. On the Expressions machine I used the fit to length button to get the most out of my paper. I used some old glitter I had from a school project years ago on the stem, and a flower from Prima. I think it came out pretty good.
