Welcome to our May Art Philosophy/Artiste Blog Hop!  
 As you know, both the Artiste and the Art Philosophy cartridges are available exclusively through a Close to My Heart consultant.  If you don't already have a Consultant that you are currently working with, please contact one the Consultants in our hop with any questions you have!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog – Love 2 Create.  If you came from Michelle of My Flights of Fancy then you are in the right place!

Our challenge this month features not only one of these amazing cartridges but we also have a Wedding  theme.  There are so many weddings this time of year!  Do you have any weddings coming up?

I just love this card! I made it using For Always paper pack, I just love the simple black and white color scheme. And with so many cuts to choose from on the Cricut Artiste Cartridge its easy to put together a beautiful card like this! I used: pg. 61, Accent 1 @ 2.5". The best part about this card is that a little color can be added easily with some ribbon, sparkles or even a flower.

Your next stop on our "Happily Ever After" hop is Michelle of My Creations with Michelle .
