I am plodding along on my personal Cricut Challenge. If you are new here and peeking in I have made it a personal challenge to use every single one of my X# of Cricut cartridges (I'm too embarrassed to say how many I really have!) on some sort of project! So, today I chose Florals Embellished to work on. I don't even remember buying the cartridge! I could not tell you when I got it but I don't think it was long ago as it is one of the newer cartridges. It has really pretty cuts on it...I definitely need to look more closely at this cartridge and search the great big old web to see what other projects people have done with it. It has really pretty flowers, birds, butterflies, word art, silhouettes...it has some beautiful cuts on it...that's for sure.
And here is my card:
For today I chose a butterfly that I cut at about 2 3/4 inches. I used Hazel My Mind's Eye Papers (Stella Rose),
a sentiment from Papertrey Ink, some bling, cardstock from Core'dinations, a Fiskars scallop punch,
and a Stampin' Up word punch (can't remember what it's called but it is the rounded word label that the sentiment is on). I also embossed the card base with the Victoria Cuttlebug Embossing folder
and inked the edges with some distress inks:
I also entered this in one of my favorite challenges (because I love to see what others are doing with their Cricuts) the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog #72 (Challenge Me Monday) challenge which was to use a bug on a project as well as the 2 Sisters Challenge to use the following color palette: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery and Very Vanilla.
(Wow...that must be a world's record....to use the word "challenge" 5 times in one sentence! But it's late and I'm not rephrasing...you get the idea, right???
