A cricut photo card

Here's a photo card I've made for an order... I thought I'd try out my new Wild Card cricut cartridge that came last week.  Up until today I've just randomly cut things with it, but not really put anything together.

So, the photo was provided by my lovely customer, cardstock is a mix of Papermill (soft ruby red & dark brown) and Stampin' Up (Kraft).  I've cut the frame and '30' on the cricut using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  The argyle backing was made using cuts from the Wild Card cartridge.  The star corner was also from Wild Card - cut twice in red & brown so I could 'pop up' some of the brown stars.  Sentiment is a digi one from Cuddly Buddly, coloured with promarkers, and mounted on a nestie peony die.  Added a little ribbon tab to finish.

I'm entering my card for the challenge at Die Cuttin Divas, which is 'I'm seeing stars'... hope it's ok for the challenge - I'm very new to the cricut!

Now I won't go too miserable on you, but I just need to say a big Happy Birthday to my beautiful little angel Harvey who was born sleeping 4 years ago today.  It seems I was right, and all of my family have forgotten - even my mum... I've had lots of lovely messages from friends though.  I've actually been ok for most of the day, had a few little weepy moments, but mostly I've not been too bad - a vast improvement on last year when I spent what felt like the entire day sobbing!

Off to do a bit of catching up with everyone's blogs now :o)
