Two blog entries in one day? Someone pinch me! I have been going through my least used cartridges and trying to use them (I told you I've been creating - just not posting) and I made a card using Cricut Lite Celebrate with Flourish.
I thought the elephant was so cute. I cut him out at 3" and the happy birthday at 2". I stamped SU green galore with Hero Arts polka dot in versamark and embossed with clear powder. I used lemon ice stickles on the flourish of the hat and on the elephant. I cut the ear out of Echo Park - A walk in the park paper. I used my irock to add orange gems - one for his eye and one to dot the I, lol. I had some ribbon in my stash I picked up from Michael's for a dollar last Summer that was the right color scheme. The turquoise paper is Recollections and the others are from AC Moore's brand. I think it is a fun summery card.
I am entering this card in Celebrate the Occasion (CTO) challenge #18. The challenge is to create a Happy Birthday card using a party hat. I made this card for a color challenge but I missed the deadline and through someone else I follow, IndyMermaid, I found CTO and this card is a perfect fit! This is my first entry with them and I am happy to play along. I need more challenges to motivate me to craft - and post. I hope more people are inspired to check out CTO. Happy crafting! CTO, thank you for giving me a place to showcase my card.
