Cheer up Mam1016

Hi Everyone!

The card I made today is for someone, Marisa, that I have never met and just started watching some of her videos last week. Here is her YouTube page Mam1016. She is having a challenge/giveaway. To make her a card to cheer her up, it must have blue on it and a star or heart but I forgot that part, mine has no heart accept my heart while I was making it, lol. It must also cheer her up. She said we could just make a video in response to her video and we could send it to her for more of a chance. So, of course I sent it to her, how could I make a card for someone and not send it?

I forgot to take pictures as I go so you can see on the blog how I did it. but it is all in the video below.

 I used the Artiste cartridge I got from and Freshly Picked Cricut cartridge, I am so proud of myself using a cartridge I have never used. lol. The butterfly and grass was from the Artists and the flowers and sign were from Freshly picked. You are welcome to download the cut file here for CCR.

I cut the purple and blue back ground layers with my new paper cutter from yesterdays post, you can see the video on that post. 
 I used Stickles on the butterfly and embossed the blue back ground with a butterfly embossing folder through the Cuttlebug.

I layered the grass by putting the back rows right on the card and then using glue dots on top of each other to make them thicker and then the next layer is on foam squares and then the top layer is on foam squares on top of the layer underneath it. Did you get all that? if not watch the video. I stamped the little sign with one of my new stamps I got from HSN it says "you inspire me" The ink is also new from my HSN Haul, it is the gold ink from Anna Griffin.
In this picture you will notice the butterfly is a little blurry, it was trying to fly away. I told it to stay put and to cheer Marisa up. I put it on a home made action wobble.

This is the inside of the card. Can you look at this and not smile? Is it  possible? I hope this cheers her up! She should get it in the mail today, Monday the latest. 

Here is the video!
