My Pink Stamper Imagine Pink Wednesday: "For My Friend" plus Giveaway!

Hi everyone! I'm super excited to be sharing with you a card I made for Robyn of My Pink Stamper's Imagine Pink Wednesday! Every Wednesday, Robyn has an Imagine project for you, and today she invited me to do a guest design post with the Imagine. Robyn is brilliant with the Cricut--and she is a genuinely good  person. So I'm thrilled to be a part of her Imagine Pink Wednesday!
I really LOVE my Cricut Imagine, and am super glad I gave this machine a chance. However, it's going to make me "cricut fat"...heehee. It takes all the work out of making any project--I just love it!
First of all, if you are coming by my blog first, make sure you hop over to Robyn's blog: My Pink Stamper. Her blog is amazing--and if you are the only person out in the free world who has NOT been to her blog--get over there now--it's fantastic!

Better Together Cartridge Images--Look how CUTE!!
For my project today, I'm using the Better Together Cricut Imagine Cartridge. I'm also giving this cartridge away, so make sure you read this entire post, so you don't miss out on that!

For My Friend Purse Shaped Card

I made this card for my very close friend, Janice of Stamping with Janice. Janice is just an amazing friend and person--so she definitly tops my "bestie list" (heehee sorry Janice). So this card is for her!

Ingredients for My Friend Card:
My Pink Stamper Everyday Life stamp setBetter Together Cricut Imagine CartridgeWhite smooth cardstock (Bazill)
Foam dimensional dots (Helmar)
Pearl bling (Creative Charms)
Dry adhesive (Tombow-monoadhesive)
Brown or Blue grosgrain ribbon (Offray)
*I started off brown and then switched to blue on my ribbon*

Next, PLEASE forgive my choppy video! I had to edit it--gasp---to make sure it was under 15 minutes, so that is why the very first part is choppy--I had to edit it a wee bit--and as you all know, I have never edited my videos. So obviously, I need some editing experience--I will work on that! lol. It's also lower in some parts of the video--all I can say is obviously I'm a hot mess with my video--sorry Robyn!
