Swirls and Pearls with a new challenge site

Thursday, September 17, 2009

I found a new challenge site this week while blurfing, Crazy 4 Challenges. I combined the sketch with the challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenges, which is to use swirls and pearls. I decided to do something which I rarely do, which is to use my cricut for a card. I chose the flower from Accent Essentials that cuts out multiple layers. I cut the same flower twice, once in white and then once in black cardstock and then just layered the flower. After I glued it down, of course, I was thinking that it would have been cool to add some texture to the white parts of the flower with my cuttlebug. Oh well. Hindsight is 20-20, right? My card size is 6x6.

***Supplies***
Patterned paper: Unknown
Other: Cricut (Accent Essentials cartridge), CTMH adhesive pearls

Thanks for your visit and have a great Thursday.

Excellent card, Alanna! I'm loving how using the Cricut for making cards is gaining some momentum as it gives me ideas for using mine.
