MPS Challenge

Good Evening All,

The first two days back after Winter Break have been extremely smooth and quite productive, so I thought why not keep it that way at home. I created a card just for Robyn at My Pink Stamper for her current Design Team Challenge.

Here is the challenge: Make a card, scrapbook page, or other Cricut project with your favorite cartridge using Robyn's favorite colors......
(other optional color of your choice) ~ creamy white
  • I used the Walk in My Garden cartridge to cut the flowers, leaves, snails, and butterfly.
  • The flowers were cut at 1", 1 1/4", and 1 1/2" from p 87. The petals were embossed with Swiss Dots.
  • The leaves were cut at 1/2", the snail is 1/2" and 1/4", and the butterfly is 1/2".
  • The stem was created from a mint green ribbon, the flower centers are BoBunny buttons with cream craft thread, and the butterfly's trail was made from pink gems.
Oh, how I wish it was Spring. I love the smell of fresh flowers, the fluttering garden critters, and the warm sun on my skin. I am definitely a Floridian missing my sunshine.

Hope you have a great one,
