Challenge #299-Spring

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #299-Spring
Make a project about Spring.

The FCCB Design Team is sponsoring a $25 gift card at


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. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

Here is my Project:

To me, butterflies symbolize spring. I cut this with my Cricut Explore and Cricut Designs Space. The butterfly background (Paper Lace) was cut at 5.1 inches with the black & whte polka dot and the white cardstock. The card was made by welding two backgrounds (one mirrored) together. The butterfly (Sentimentals) was cut at 2" tall out of black, pink, and dark red cardstock. I'm going to leave this blank, so I can personalize it for a birthday, Thank You, Congratulations, etc.

Be sure to visit FCCB next May 1 for a huge, awesome prize challenge!


  1. This is such a beautiful card! I love the background and the beautiful butterfly you cut for the 3d effect! Blessings, Jamie (FCCB DT)

  2. So pretty! Butterflies mean spring to me too! Very clever to make the card shaped like the backgrounds! I love the welding tool!

  3. This is so pretty! I'm in awe of how you saw this to put together. I'm challenged in putting things like this together and you do so a beautiful job of it! I've tried do this with the welding tool and mine just looks messy. Love it!!!

  4. I love this Michelle!! I've never thought of using one of hose backgrounds as a card base! So pretty with the pop of colour :)

  5. Your card base is so pretty. I love it and the butterfly. I really need to expand my Cricut eyes. LOL
