That's right, folks--I am the sponsor for this week's challenge at FCCB--so excited!  You may be wondering why, as a CTMH consultant, I have chosen to use SU supplies for this card.  Great question LOL!  The answer is a very simple one.  Up until I discovered CTMH, I used SU products almost exclusively.  And do I have a lot of them?  You bet I do!  I prefer to use my CTMH supplies in my scrapbooking workshops with my customers, and I am trying to use up my SU, so I usually use SU supplies for cards and the like.  But CTMH cardstock cuts beautifully in the Cricut, and I highly recommend it for that.

This week we're doing a color challenge--use yellow, purple and gray.  I had this lovely patterned paper from SU's spring mini catalog that I wanted to use, plus I had the big yellow scalloped circle (Spellbinders) that I had cut for something else and not used.  So I built my card around those two things.

Card is 5.5" square.  Base is PTI white.  Other CS is SU Smokey Slate, Daffodil Delight, Perfect Plum, and Wild Wasabi.  I sued 2 embossing folders:  Swiss Dots from Cuttlebug and a Darice folder for the butterflies.  The sentiment is from the Lyrical Letters cartridge.

The roses are from Close to My Heart's Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, and the leaves are from CTMH Artiste.  CTMH makes another cartridge--Artbooking--that is GREAT for scrapbooking.  AND--drumroll please!  CTMH is coming out with another awesome Cricut Collection in August!  Details are top-secret--consultants don't even know them yet, but you can bet it will be top notch.  CTMH Cricut Collections include the cartridge itself, which has over 700 images on it, 3 coordinating stamp sets, and 3 sheets of chipboard accents, which are white and suitable to ink or stamp on.  Each stamp set and chipboard sheet also tells you which cartridge and what size to make your cut--so convenient!  Plus there are many stamp sets throughout the CTMH catalog which have coordinating images.  They are outlined in red.  Below you can see photos of each of our current Cricut Collections and some of the awesome projects you can make using theml

I really hope you'll play along with our color challenge this week!  All you have to do is make a project using the colors yellow, purple, and gray, and at least one Cricut cut!  Nothing to it, and you could win a $20 gift certificate from my CTMH website!  Thanks for dropping by today--have a great day!
