Artistry-CTMH's New Cricut Collection is Here

So, this really didn't turn out anything like it was in my head at  And although the ribbon looks red, it is really hollyhock.... hard to get the colors right in pictures sometimes. 
So Close to My Heart has released yet another Cricut cartridge, Artistry.  And as I do all of the others, I love it!  Although I myself loved Artfully Sent and all of it's wonderful interactive cards, many told me they weren't going to buy it because they didn't make cards.  It was a very versatile cartridge actually when you factor in Design Space and how you can ungroup items and just cut parts of images and it was definitely a cartridge you can and I did use for scrapbook pages.  But if you shied away from it because of that, please do take a look at the new one.  There are so many awesome images on this one that are current and in demand... what a great tool for all kinds of papercrafting!  On this card, the flower and the little banner that I welded with my Fuse tool were both cut from Artistry.  The butterfly is from Artiste (there is one on the Artistry cartridge, but the one on Artiste was what I wanted.  The leaves behind the ribbon are also from Artistry.  One of my favorite cuts that I am going to use A LOT! 
The base is watercolored with pink, blue and green (the green got covered up) and then I used the salt technique on it again.  I got carried away with my spray pen (the darker blue)  The doily I cut with a die that I have from the Brushed paper.
Thanks for stopping by and I just might be posting again this weekend.  Working on a card for PaperSweeties birthday celebration.  And don't forget to come back Monday for Atlantic Hearts (and another PaperSweeties celebration card).  I am working my fingers to the bone for you!

A lot of die-cuts on this certainly get your use out of Cricut Design Space, like you say so flexible for any papercrafting. Very pretty card.
