I am so excited! I got an email today that my Mystery Box for Megan Elizabeth's Cropped Event got shipped today and should be here in a couple days! OMG I am so excited. There's something like $70 in retail items in this box plus admission to the web event for an entire weekend! I can't wait to see what's in this box!! I will share when it arrives and will be posting the projects I do for this fun event!
Now I know why card making is so popular. Don't get me wrong, I love to scrapbook and make scrapbook mini albums and pages, but there's just something so satisfying about making a card. They're quick and you get instant gratification for a completed project! I'm not a very fancy girl so I'm finding that my cards are so simple but cute! I made this one using the Best of 2006 cartridge and it said it is originally from Doodlecharms. (I have actually been debating on whether or not to get Doodlecharms).
The image was cut at 2 3/4 inches and the card is a regular A2 size. I used Stampin' Up papers Gable Green and Pixie Pink. I have no idea if these colors are still available, I got them almost 4 years ago, but love the pink and green color combination!
I believe the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. I love the ribbon selection there, especially in the fabric section of the store! It seems to be a lot cheaper than Michaels.
I found the sticker in my box of baby stickers and thought that it would be cute. The little pearl looking dots on the butterfly and under the ribbon are made using a Viva Decor Pearl Pen, sorry I can't remember the name of the color but it's a white-ish color.
I will be submitting this card on 3 challenges:
Anything goes at CardzTV
Oh, Baby challenge at My Craft Spot
Anything goes at Die Cuttin Divas
A Recipe challenge at The Cricut Chirp
