Exploring Cricut Birthday Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to Exploring Cricut's 3rd birthday! And we are having a blog hop, so if you've just found my blog, here is the line up so you can enjoy some great Cricut projects-

Michelle N (You are here)

Michelle S (Go here next!)

In celebration, here is my Minnie Mouse Card!

Minnie was made with the Mickey and Friends cartridge, cut at 4 1/4". This is cut all with scraps of black, white, pink, green and flesh colored cardstock. A pink rhinestone completes Minnie's bow.

The green Frame was made using the Cindy Loo cartridge cut at 5". I took a paper trimmer to the inside edges for a little more room.

The banner is part of the Artiste cartridge by CMTH. It was cut at 1 1/4", stamped with the matching stamp  and mounted onto the chipboard in the Artiste collection goodies.

I am giving away blog candy for one lucky commenter-but if you become a new follower, you'll get 2 entries! The blog candy consists of: Cosmo Cricket Buck Naked Alphabet Chipboard letters, pink Zva Creative bling flourishes, and Pieces of 8 bottle caps!

I hope you liked this card, and the next stop is Michelle S! Have a fun hop!
