I heard you needed cheering up

Hi there!  Wanted to share with you all an A2 sized card I created using a digi stamp from Polly Craft, free digital images from (for the inside of the card), and a filigree card base by Samantha Walker (purchased through Silhouette Store).  I am linking this card at the She's a Sassy Lady blog.

I was not sure how my dull blade in my Cameo was going to handle the intricate design on this card front, so I printed 3 of the Polly Craft digi stamp onto an 8 1/2 x 11 white cardstock before cutting them with the Cameo.  Well, they ALL cut well enough, so I ended up with 3 perfectly cut card fronts LOL!  The sentiment says "I heard you needed cheering up", but I forgot to jot down what font I used to type it (yikes!). 

After coloring the image with my Prismacolor pencils, I decided to hand stitch around it, following the little stitch marks. 

I tied a bow to the base of the card before adhering the inside mat and the front.  Here's a peek at the inside of the card.  The images inside were free png images from kits I downloaded from  I just added some irock gems inside and outside of the card.

Well I'm sending this card over in the mail today, so off to the post office I go.  Have a wonderful day!
