Card Exchange - March

Here's the card I made for this month:


I found the flourish graphic to cut on my Cricut from  I love how it turned out.  I was inspired by a card in the PaperCrafts Magazine.  That's usually where I look for inspiration.  Something will catch my eye, and I'll come up with a card that involves that element somehow. 

Since I usually add stitching somewhere on my cards...and I wasn't sure how I wanted to include it this time...I just added a little stitch on the heart in the upper left.

I also like to take an element from the paper and tie it in to a graphic or cut.  I took the flourish with me to the paper store and found this paper that had the same little flower design.  I love it when I can make that work.

Here are the rest of the cards I received last night:

We had a small group this time.  I only made one card instead of two this round, so I didn't come home with as many cards.  But it's always a fun evening spent with friends (and yummy food)!
