Card Challenges & The Cuttlebug Spot

The "Mickey Card" completed 2 of the challenges at JS; paper doll and doodle. I used my Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cart for the paper doll. Then for the title and the Mickey ears in the lower right corner I used the Mickey cart. Those paper dolls are so much fun to create.

This card is for this week's challenge at the Cuttlebug Spot. The challenge was to use brown with either orange or blue. The paper I used for the diagonal background is from the K&Co Blue Awning Stack. I love those papers! I used the Cuddlebug Swiss Dots folder for the top section and the Birds and Swirls folder for the bottom section. The title "beautiful" and flower were cut using the Cricut Home Decor cart. As you can tell, I slightly distressed the edges of the flower and then used Cat's Eye brown ink on it as well. Then, I decided to use a ribbon knot for the center. I also inked the flourishes which I received from a swap I participated in last summer. Thanks Ashley!

Now, a close up of the flower to show its dimension.

This was my first time to cut that particular flower, but I will definitely use it again. It was so much fun to make!

Thanks for visiting my blog,

Carol :)
