Dream Vacation

I got the new Formal Occasion Cricut cartridge and just had to play with it. I created this fun card of a dream vacation spot.

This cut is so cute, and I had the perfect background paper to go with it. I just added ribbon and a sentiment. The image has a lot of detail, so I left the rest of the card simple.

I was able to use paper from my stash, and the ribbon was from a wedding favor. I just couldn't toss it, and I'm glad I got to reuse it on this project.
