FCCB Challenge #210-Celebrate Mom

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #210 Celebrate Mom

This Weeks Sponsor

$50.00 Giftcard to SVG Cuts

~This Weeks Challenge~

Celebrate Mom
Create a project that celebrates mom.

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

Here is my project-

This was made with a kit at called Mother's Garden. I absolutely adore this kit! All the paper came from the DCVW stack French Country, except the brown which was a scrap. I used the Cricut Cartridge Picturesque to cut the pink Acanthus corners @ 1 1/4". The large pearls are from Michaels Recollection (thanks Emily!) and I used Cocoa Stickles on the butterfly. The stamped sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.

I watched several of the how-to videos on before I started to cut. Everything you need to know is right there on video. Very clear, concise instructions made this so easy for a newbie like me! I had just bought SCAL2 on Etsy (a physical copy) a couple of weeks before we were notified of this challenge, but hadn't worked with it yet. Believe me, if I can do it, anyone can! I am so going nuts with this wonderful sponsor! They have a ton of great "freebies" and the prices on other images are more than reasonable!

I'm entering this at Simon Says Die Cutting Challenge.
