Cooking With Cricut # 78 Spring

This week the Challenge at Cooking With Cricut is to create a spring project inspired by a song.  My inspiration comes from the song BUILD ME UP BUTTERCUP by the Foundations.  What a a fun song to sing along with.  Oh, and I have torn up many a dance floors with this song.  It is a great song with great memories.


The card is made with paper from K&Co. the card base is cut from George and Basic Shapes.  The scallop frames are cut from ASHLYN'S ALPHABET.  
The flowers are cut from the 50 STATES cartridge.  After attaching the flowers to the card, I added a gold pearl center to each flower and yellow glitter glue.

The butterfly is a cut from GIVE A HOOT.  I added orange glitter glue to the butterfly to glam it up a bit.  The flourish of gold gems is from Recollections.  And the sentiment is from a K Andrew Designs stamp set called Fashionable Friends. 
While making the card I was listening to an old Foundations album and singing along.  I thought you too may want to hear the song, so here it is.



Please join us this week at Cooking With Cricut and link up your spring project inspired by a song.
