Spring is HERE!


I made this card for the Fantabulous Cricut challenge this week. The theme is--you guessed it--spring! This card measures 5.25" square. Card base is Gina K Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight white. I used the Cricut Lite cartridge Bloom for the fence and tree, and Give a Hoot for the bird (it's the one on top of the evergreen tree). I sponged the edges of the fence with Bashful Blue ink, popped it up on foam tape, and used pink stickles for the flower centers on the tree. Sent. is from SU Something to Celebrate and is stamped in Marina Mist. Tree and flower leaves are also sponged. It's truly amazing how much sponging can add to a Cricut cut! I love how this card turned out! Hope you like it too--thanks for stopping by today!
