Cooking With Cricut Challenge: May Flowers

I hope you all enjoyed the 2nd Blogaversary celebration last week over at Cooking With Cricut.  Well, we are excited to have some new challenges for you and this week the theme is MAY FLOWERS.  Create any kind of project with your Cricut and include flowers.

This card, as you can see has several different layers to it.  I began with a pretty pale pink mat for the base.  I topped it with a white mat that I embossed with a Sizzx folder, and used a creamy ecru color to ink the mat. 

 Next I added a vertical mat of sweet little pink and blue flowers. To that I added a pale blue ribbon and white lace.  This mat was inked in a pale blue. On top of that I added a pale pink and white horizontal banner.  This I made using the ticking background stamp from JustRite Stampers.  The beautiful bird Dollie is a cut from the Cricut cartridge Sophie.  The paper is from ColorBok.  I did a little inking on it with gold and bronze and then gave it a spray of Glimmer Mist.  The top is adorned with a blue butterfly.  The little flowers are from Michaels.  I had a small spray of them and just cut them from the spray.  

The sentiment is from JustRite Stampers and is stamped on a pretty cut from Spellbinders.  That too was inked a little with god and bronze.  To complete the card I added a small tag from Studio 112 that says DREAM, and three pretty blue gems from Recollections.  

Please go over to Cooking With Cricut and see what the design team has cooked up for you.  And then, remember to link up your May Flower project.  I look forward to seeing what you create.  Thanks for coming by and please come back often.
