MCCR - Festive Card creating Tuesday

This is my Design Team post for My Cricut Craft Room

For our MCCR DT post today we were asked to create a Festive Card that was Embossed.
This is what I came up with:

I used page 71 and cut the card and sleeve at 4".
This was the first time I have used the Artiste Cart.

Here is the card with the sleeve on it.
I put a little bit of stickles around the little heart on the sleeve.

I used an embossing pen to write and then used the embossing gun to make it sparkle and shine.

Thanks for stopping by.

I started with a simple $1 picture frame from Michaels.

I cut the flowers using my Big Shot and the Spellbinders Shapeabilities.
I put a jewel in the middle of the bigger flower that was wrapped loosely. 

I used puffy Paint to make my neon green butterfly dots.
