LOVE this card!!! This card is for my niece. I really put on my thinking cap and got creative, I used several different carts and ALL my machines..LOL  I won't tell you how old she is...its kind of obvious..LOL
 Banner is from the silhouette cameo @ 3.75"w
Girl is from the Imagine "Best Friends" @ 3.25"(my niece actually looks like that!!)
name is from "Lyrical letters" @ .75"
hand is from "A Childs Year" @ 2.75"
#5 is from "cursive 101" @ 1.30"
Cuttlebug "swiss Dots" embossing folder
4 pink rhinestones
and embroidery thread pink

The BEST part is the HB banner made with the silhouette cameo!!!! None of my PC machines would have been able to do this.... it was so easy and QUICK on the silhouette!!! Yes, the tiny little triangles were cut out and I glued them to the thread and then draped the thread across the card. COOL HUH??
 See, ALL my machines work very well together. Yeah, I know it was a lot of money to spend on a machine just to print/cut text but its worth it to me...Now my cards will be extra special cause I can add text/sentiments...The silhouette is for small text/sentiments only and I will ALWAYS use my PC carts for my die cutting. I am a CRIC AHOLIC!!!!! ROTFLOL!!!!

PS...I helpful tip..on the imagine I LOVE the border(shadow) feature but on this girl tho I didn't like the color it gave.  I changed the border color to match the card blends in with the rest of the card and you hardly notice it.. NEAT HUH?? I gotta start remembering to do that for now on.
