A Demo Make & Take

At My Artfully Sent Demo 
With an elbow to elbow group I had an Artfully Sent Demonstration last Saturday.
I demonstrated an envelope with liner and each type of card that can be made using 
the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge. At the end each person got to make this border
card with a pocket card enhancement. I will post my demonstration cards this week.

Swings to the Challenge
At this week's Color My Heart challenge the colors are
Cranberry Sorbet Olive Lagoon Pacifica
Adding these five colors to this Artfully Sent Swing card was truly a challenge. 
This swing card is from page 33 in the Artfully Sent booklet. The smaller 
cut out flowers are cut from the icon button at 7 inches. They are 
designed to fit on the pop up card but they fit the centers of the 
flowers on the swing card just right. And...just to shake it up a bit, 
I didn't want to use the "congrats" part of the card so I used 
the "thanks" card part on page 9 in the booklet.
Now it's your turn to share your creation with us at Color My Heart.
