Artbooking in August - 8/5

 Welcome to the Artbooking in August blog hop.  If you have come from Lisa's blog, you are on the right path.

My contribution to today's hop is a card using the 4x6 frame on page 87 of
the Artbooking booklet.  I used real-dial size to shrink it a bit to fit a standard
 A-2 card.  After adhering it to a piece of White Daisy cardstock, I trimmed
the White Daisy to just the size of the frame.  Since the Artbooking cartridge
has been added to the Cricut Craft Room, now I can just 'hide' the inner cuts
and let the Cricut do the cutting work for me.  My card base is from my Spring
/Summer 2013 display board showing a sample of one sheet of the For Always
 paper kit 7165B, still available in the new Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book.
 The cute stamped image of a penguin is from the Hostess Rewards stamp set
 C1560 Wintry Wishes.  A bit of (retired) Cranberry ribbon and a couple of
 black sparkles from the Black & Grey Assortment Z1754 and this card
is ready to announce it's 'Warm Winter Wishes' to a special recipient in a few

Now you can slide on over to Heather's blog
for another great Artbooking project.  Remember to come back next Monday
 for another round of Artbooking!
