are a girls best friend! And a great accent for a card maker. This weeks challenge at SweetSassyDiva is to use our Cricut to put some diamonds on ... whatever we chose.

I honestly had no plan when I sat down at my craft table today. I opened the Cricut booklet that happened to be out on my table - Holiday Cakes - and found this great diamond border  with a top layer. I then went to my Stampin Up Color Coach and picked a random combo... Pink Pirouette, Bravo Burgundy and Sahara Sand.

I cut the diamond border at 1.14 inches, 3 times and the top layer once. I laid the ribbon on the card front then attached the borders over the top and tied a bow. I made the flower from Art Philosophy at 4.5 inches ( next time I would make it smaller). I added some  extra loops and tails of ribbon and then used my hot glue gun to attach the flower. A bit of hot glue in the center to hold the clear rhinestone and some gel gen dots and this simple card is done.

I  hope you will come back tomorrow to see what my fellow DT members have created!

WOW, WOW, AND ANOTHER WOW!!!!! You certainly grabbed my attention with this card.
Absolutely love the colors and the simplicity of it. Now to find a cartridge that will do diamonds other than the one you mentioned (don't have it lol)

I have left 2 comments regarding your absolutely fabulous card but it seems,for some reason it hasn't shown up.
I wondered if you would mind if I copied it?

You can certainly use the tutorials to make your own. We only ask that you link back to and that you are using it for personal use only. I'm glad that you find inspiration here.
