Use it Tuesday Guest Designer!!! :)

Hey everyone!  I am so excited that I was asked to be a Guest Designer over at Use it Tuesday!!!!  This is a really fun blog that challenges you to use hoarded crafting items you have in your stash...  I know I am notorious for buying paper packs, ribbon, bling, etc. and never using them!  This card uses a lot of hoarded items that I had never used before:  a new Cricut cartridge, DCWV paper, stamp, and ribbon!  I bought this DCWV paper pack because I love that it uses real photos, but it got pushed into the "paper pack pile" and never used....  I love the way the cartoonish die cut looks against the real horizon...  Anywho, here's the card...

Use it Tuesday- Indian summer & use a hoarded item
Cricut 360- refreshing
Paper Playtime- water
Scrappy Moms Stamps- Pack Your Bags cartridge

A2 sized card
Pack Your Bags cartridge- girl cut at 3"
Making Memories Passport stamp set
DCWV The Photo Real Stack 3
Corner rounder

I kept this card very simple... Hope you enjoy!  :)
