CC Blogiversary Challenge #1

Happy Blogiversary Cricut Circle Blog!  Wow it has been a year since I joined Cricut Circle!  In honor of their one year anniversary, the CC Blog is celebrating in a big way by hosting challenges for Circle members all week with fun giveaways!  This is my entry for the first challenge of the week.  We were asked to create something using cuts from one or all of our exclusive Circle cartridges.

I opted to create a quick and simple card for my niece who is now in her freshman year in HS.  She called me yesterday which is really sweet of her cuz I haven't seen her in a while.  I used the Sophie cart as the base of my card.  The butterfly cut and layer is also from the same cart.  I embossed the bottom layer of the butterfly with the D'Vine swirls CB folder for added texture and adhered the layers together and onto the card using only foam tapes in the middle. I like the way the butterfly just seems to want to take off any minute ;)

For the inside of the card, I cut "missing you" from the Stamping cartridge.  I added faux stitching with gel pens and then 2 half pearls for the butterfly. 

And best yet, I used only my stash so this makes project #5 for me for Using My Stash pledge at the CC MB.  (yeah, yeah, I did have a bit of a not-so-secret craft spending indiscretion lately as I openly admitted in the CC MB, but I do promise to use those supplies soon).

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!

Quick and simple, quick and simple!! Maybe for you! What a wonderful, fabulous card! Such creativity! I stand amazed! Don't worry, I have tiny bouts of cheating on the Using My Stash challenge, too! But not too much! :0)
