A "pretty" Card



So I never have really made a "pretty" card, only "cutesy" ones. I was so excited to get the Storybook Cricut Cartridge for Christmas because there are a lot of "pretty" cuts.
I love all the texturing and destressing this flower has.
What is your favorite cartridge to use when making "pretty" cards?
If you have any questions or would like to see a certain video, email me at inkingitupcrazy@gmail.com

Smiley Card Images

I have had a few emails over the past couple of weeks asking where you can find the images found on the Smiley Cards Cartridge (the freebie cartridge to current gypsy owners in October)
Here is what I found. Hope it helps:)
