The Gypsy File is available for this card by email. Just copy and paste this email to your personal email account and let me know which Gypsy file that you are wanting.

This is a second birthday card I made for my daughter... I sent her to my blog and she saw her other card before she opened it... she sent me an email that she needed another one so she would feel loved... I love her so much that I though she was teasing me... she wasn't.... when I truly got that she had felt so unloved I rushed to get her another one in the mail... I hope this makes up for my unintended mistake and that she can find it in her hear to forgive me.  This is a simple card to make... I didn't do it simple because I was in a hurry ... It ended up simple because I loved this butterfly so much and I thought this was the best way to accent it... the flowers came from my dear friend Sandy...she sent me a goodies box for my birthday yesterday!!..thank you so much Sandy... Madison if you read this... I love you very much!!.... 

Once Upon a Princess
Tag and its layer cut @ w 4.45 x h 3.0...on the Cricut I would cut these at 3 inches.
Butterfly and its layers cut @ w 1.80 x h 1.59... on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 1/2.

Card base is 4 ¼ x 5 ½, Frame Piece 4 x 5 ¼ , Background piece 3 ½ x 4 ¾… these cuts are on the inside and outsides of my cards… Sentiment piece 2 ¾ x 4 inside only….. I cut all of these with my paper trimmer.

I used a sharpie for the brown dots...acrilic paint for the white dots and some of the doodling on the butterfly.
I used a water based brown ink and blue chalks.

There is now a link at the bottom of each post where you can show off your recreation of my cards… with a link back to your card on your blog, or the Cricut Message Board or a photo storage place like Photo Bucket…. I would love it if you share your recreations with me! It just makes me happy!! Thank you so, so much! Hugs

I love sharing the instructions and files for my cards but I do ask that if you use my instructions or files to recreate my card and place it on your blog or somebody else’s blog that you give me the credit for the original design. I also ask that you do not submit my designs for publication, profit or for any contest. Thank you!

OH Jeannie,
I think that this card turned out wonderful. Sometimes it's better to simplify and it makes the card speak volumes!
