Flaunt It Fridays #10 - Indie Arts

This is the challenge at Flaunt It Fridays for this week...
" For this week's challenge we are asking you to make something with the INDIE ART cartridge and the cut choice this week is the LIPS . You can create anything you want and for an extra challenge try to challenge yourself to create something different from last week's project. If you do not own this cart feel free to use any similar cut from any cartridge, you have one week to enter the challenge."

I do have this cart as it was a freebie with my Christmas Gypsy! I made a Valentines Card this week.

*Lips cut at 2 inches from Indie Art
*Lips - red scrap with a glitter paste made of DecoArt Triple Thick Brillian Brush-On Gloss Glaze and Martha Stewart Cherry Popsicle glitter
*Shadow - bright pink scrap
*Seal - Free Digistamp from Digital Delights colored with Crayola colored pencils (since I don't own any markers)
*Sentiment - I have very few stamps, so I made a rub-on from a tutorial I saw at The Paper Boutique.

I had my 5 year old niece - Heidi on Saturday. She wanted to play with my cricut. The little stinker knows what buttons on the gypsy to push to make it cut. She knows how to load the paper. Her favorite part is taking off our cutouts. She made 2 of these cards while she was here. One card is from her mom and dad and the other card is for Grandma and Grandpa. She was so excited that she smeared the rub-on running back and forth to show Uncle Vince. She decided she needed a desk in my craft room and had Uncle Vince bring in a TV tray to put beside me. She found a stool and got right to work. She wanted to add more to the inside of the card and used the free digistamps Big Heart by D2D at Delightful Inspiration and Heart Gumball Machine at Little Scraps of Heaven Digital Designs.
