Cricut Jukebox Card

This is a Make It Now project from Cricut Design Space.  It was a bit time consuming for a card but I love it.

My completed projects: I used the Gold Shimmer Brush to add some sparkle to some of the complements on the layouts.  I also changed some of the papers around to what I liked better and to fit my pictures. – This is an easy way to change up the layouts, especially if you don’t care for some of the paper, just flip it over and use the opposite side!

I used the stamp set from the Hello Baby Cardmaking WYW for these cards as well as some of the leftover complements.
