Cricut 360 DT Call and a Button Threading Tip

With summer approaching I was hoping to submit a few cards for a couple of the Design Team calls. Here is one for the newly created site, Cricut 360. Here are the instructions to apply:

If you are interested in applying for the design team, please create a card or a layout with LIME GREEN and a BUG in it.

This was the first card I made, but I wasn't sure the green was lime enough so I decided to make another. The butterfly was cut from Serenade. The sentiment is a sticker.
I used the Serenade cartridge to cut the branch and flowers. The worm is a brad that I purchased at the Orlando Scrapbook Expo. "Hang in there" was cut from the Wild Card cartridge.

Ever wonder the best way to thread those buttons?
I have a tip.
 Use a dental flosser.

The dental flosser is just like those sewing threaders, but bigger. Yeah! It slides in and out of the hole and pulls your craft thread through with no problems. Go! Give it a try!

Hope to hear soon,
