S is my Initial.....

I decided to try my hand at a monogram card!!!  So since this was a test one I did my initial!!!!  All the cuts were made with the storybook cartridge.  I welded different swirls together to get the base  frame and then layered the rest and embossed a few with the Swiss dots embossing folder to give it some definition between layers.  I really love to add pearls and bling to my cards to give an added soft touch!!!  I followed the second sketch in Raq's challenge over on the Cricut Message Boards!!!!  They always have such fun sketches.  Even though I don't always follow along I sure do use there thread as a go to for a little nudge or inspiration from all the talented ladies that post!!!!  I made my envelope for this because it would need a stiff envelope to protect it!!  (used the just because cart and cream cardstock)  thanks for taking a look!!!
