Fun Challenge at Exploring Cricut!

This week at Exploring Cricut the Challenge is "Cricut Choice"  Create a card, layout or paper craft using any cartridge you would like.  It must include the color blue, two Cricut cuts, and at least one patterned paper.  Here is my Project:

This card has a lot of features-so here we go with the list of what I did:

  1. Cut white panel the size of the front of the card, emboss with Cuttlebug Plum Blossom embossing Folder.
  2. Edge to Edge cartridge-use blue cardstock to cut lattice @ 9", cut to size of panel and saved the rest for another project.
  3. Freshly Picked cartridge-I used a striped pattern paper, blue, light green, green, pink, and red cardstock to flower box. Studio G brown ink "dirtied" the blue box to tone it down a bit. Flower Box cut @ 2 1/2".
  4. Art Philosophy cartridge-used AP chipboard element covered with blue paper cut @ 1 1/2". White & pink cardstock cut at 1 1/4" for sentiment & frame (I just love that the card can be used for so many things!). Added 1/8" white Offray ribbon.                                         
Please be sure to check out all the Design Team members blogs for more inspiration!
