Love You a Latte

Hello, my lovely friends! I hope you are having a nice week! As you may recall, I was hoping my gypsy would arrive last Thursday, on my birthday. Well, it sure did, and it really made my day! Yay! I have been constantly playing around with it since. I figured out a lot of stuff right away. Then again, a lot of stuff, like layers, sizing, and extensive design work is definitely going to take some time!
I made a simple little card last night. I'd had this sheet of Dazzles stickers in my stash for the longest, and decided to focus on using them, and this was what I came up with:


This was my only Cricut cut off the Just Because Cards cartridge.
I thought about it, and now as I'm looking at the picture I'm wishing I would've added some faux stitching around the edge of the base. Hmmm....I just might still...Actually, I'd like to buy a sewing machine, learn to sew, and add some real stitching! But, I'm also seriously contemplating joining the Cricut Circle, and there's about 10 cartridges I just have to have, and I need some copics, and I need that new October Afternoon Fly A Kite paper, and I have to buy stuff for my Secret Sister from the Cricut MessageBoard! Oh, and I have husband who likes to spend money just as much as I do! What is a girl to do?
Oh, well! That's all for today! It's not much, I've been in a bit of a creative funk, and hoped that making this card would help me push though it...we'll see!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
XOXO,
Jess

This one is awesome! Honestly I wouldn't even add the stitching, it's perfect! You chose great colors & an interesting layout as well.
