Using Wild Card 2

I have to admit - the pictures on the Wild Card 2 Cricut Cartridge cover really don't do this cartridge justice.  The images look like a bunch of pictures from an 80's video game.  You have to look through the book to really be inspired.  This cartridge has TONS of potential!  I'm not a huge fan of the sentiments that they included with the cards, but I have tons of stamps that will make these cards perfect.  Here's my first crack at using Wild Card 2:
I love how the card base is in front of the clouds, giving this card lots of dimension.  I inked a few of the edges, added pearls, stickles and glossy accents.  The finished card is about 5" tall.  I can't wait to make more of these shaped cards - if you have this cartridge and haven't tried it yet, break it out and start playing with it - you won't regret it!
