Tags Trio Card, Bright & Pretty

This card is so much brighter and pretty in person.  I made this following a sketch and also an ad color challenge on the Cricut message board.  The ad colors were, Turquoise, Lime Green and white, not much white but there is some there.
I am really loving my Imagine and learning new things all the time.   I was a bit disappointed to learn that you can set up your files to cut with the Imagine application on the Gypsy, but can not flood fill imagines with colors and patterns.  In fact the regular Gypsy application and the Imagine application do NOT "talk" to each other.
So to work around that I printed up the paper patterns I wanted to use  close to the size it needed to cut my images out.  Then placed the papers on my mat and cut the shapes I wanted out of the pattern paper.  It is a shame if they have the Imagine app on the Gypsy that you can not use them together.  The papers I used for the tags are from the Blossom Imagine cartridge, then I cut out the tags using Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cartridge.
The background paper is that paper they call Invisibles, it is all white and has a raised pattern on it so when you rub your ink or whatever you chose over it does not adhere to the raised areas, then you rub lightly with a paper towel and the pattern shows through.  I also prayed it with Hula Hoop Glimmer mist to give it a shimmery finish,
The butterfly I got some time ago at a fabric remnant store here is town.    The "thinking of you" is on there temporarily as I am not quite sure how I want to use it yet.  
Well I sure hope you like my card well enough to leave a comment, and if you look around my blog and like what you see I would love for you to become a follower, I am trying to get to 200.
Thanks for stopping by
