Bitten By the Bug 2 Challenge - Flowers

Good morning everyone I am hosting the challenge over at BBTB2 and I chose flowers!  You can use flowers any where on your project.  Make sure you check out the design teams posts and let them know how much you like their ideas!  Also please look at the challenge rules to make sure your project is eligible for the challenge post.
I saw a card by Jody Lynn and thought I would make one very similar using the Cricut instead of die cuts.  I used the Art of Philosophy Cartridge.

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #202 - Pinch Me!

  Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #202 Use the Color Green

This Weeks Sponsor
Be Wild and Free stamp set

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.

The challenge at FCCB is to make a card using green! I decided to use a tropical green. On the Life's Beach Cartridge I used the special feature key called square cards.  I then put a piece of slightly pattern paper behind the cut to give it the feel of a sky.  I paper pierced around the opening and added some Hibiscus flowers on the corners. Hope you like it!

Bitten By the Bug 2 - Music

Hi this is my Juke Box from the 50's! I used to love to go into old diners and put a quarter in the juke box and play a favorite song!  I made this card using Nifty Fifties it was a ton of small pieces but I love how it turned out!  Come and join our challenge at BBTB2 Music!

Creative Knockouts - Border Time

We are doing cards with borders and I don't know about you but I just love border punches!!  The hardest part about using them is how to store them!!
I chose this sweet image from Cat's Pajamas.  I know flu season is almost over but it seems to always have one last punch! (pardon the pun)  I made this for a friend who is down with it right now!

I love the digi of the rose!  I printed it twice and colored with my copics.  I then cut the center section of the rose out and popped it on top of the other printed rose so that my rose had some depth!

Mark's Finest Paper

I wish you could see me right now because I am jumping up and down and thrilled to announce that I was selected as a Senior Design Team Member for Mark's Finest Papers.  I am posting my first card made with the beautifully detailed set called Easter 2014.  I hope you like the card as much as I do.

I used a stencil to create the background and sponged on several colors.  The image I colored with copic markers and then I added a few rhinestones.

Come on over to MFPSpeedyTV and see all the wonderful challenges and tutorials that are available to you!
I have entered this card in the Just for Fun: Easy Challenge,  Totally Paper, Creative Fingers
