Fantabulous Cricut Challenge # 100!!!!!

Can you believe it!  This week the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is Celebrating its 100 challenges.  That is 100 weeks of fun, friends, new ideas,  lots of sharing, and lots of love. Fantabulous Cricut is one of the most viewed and successful challenge blogs for Cricut lovers.  It was one of the very first challenges I ever entered.  I became a big fan then and have remained one.

This 100th challenge week is my last week as a DT member.  What a way to make an exit.  Being a member of this DT has been such a honor and pleasure for me.  I have made new friends, learned new techniques and tricks in paper crafting, and participated in some amazing blog hops!!  To all you new DT members, I say,"Enjoy The Ride".

This week's challenge is to use the FCCB 3 colors

When I found out the challenge involved using these three colors, I went straight to my big bin of trims.  I knew I had the perfect trim for this challenge.  I have had it for several years.  I bought a  huge Rubbermaid bin full of all kinds and colors of trim at an estate sale.  Until this challenge, I just could not decide what I would do with this particular trim.   Here it is!!

The turquoise damask paper is from a Recollections paper pack.  I thought it would make a pretty background for the Cricut cut.  This beautiful cut is from the Cricut cartridge DAMASK DECOR.  I used three  printed papers from the K&Company Abrianna Stack for this pretty cut.  I added a few gems to give it a little pizazz.   The green and purple mats are from ColorBok. I used a Martha Stewart punch to create the border.  The sweet little bird is from the GIVE A HOOT cartridge.  

I love crinkle ribbon.  And this pretty ribbon and bow are from Kimberly at My Craft Spot.  She has so many beautiful colors in this pretty ribbon.  

The sentiment on the card is from the K Andrew Designs stamp set Crafty Friends.
