Cactus Cuties Card Tutorial

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

What a little cutie I have for you today … Cactus Cutie that is. This card was created by fellow demonstrator Anne Marie Hile. I hope you are enjoying “Tutorial Week” and that you get the opportunity to see other styles from some very talented demonstrators. I love being part of this creative group.

This fun designer paper comes from the Abstract Beauty Specialty Designer Series paper …. Anne’s color choices make this card so happy and fun!
