Exploring Cricut-It's A Spring Thing

It's time for a new challenge at Exploring Cricut and our theme this go around is 'It's a Spring Thing'. We seem to have skipped Spring here and went straight to Summer. I think we almost skipped Winter, too!!! We would so love for you to create a card, layout or papercraft celebrating Spring in the colors pink, green, yellow, purple, blue and white. I thought this was gonna be a piece of cake. I was so wrong!!! I had to put a bit of thought into this challenge. So I decided to pick my sentiment first and build around that. I used the Walk In My Garden cartridge for my flowers. They can be found on page 100 under the border feature. These are sunflowers. I didn't let it cut the little dots since I was cutting them at 2 1/4 inches. I used a black bic marker to make the dots instead. The sun is cut from the Life is a Beach cartridge, at 1 inch. Since I used my Gypsy Girl to design my card, I hid the dots on the sunflowers and the face on the sun using the hide contour. The grass is a Fiskars punch. I love it!! Makes cutting grass so much easier!!!  All of the papers I used to cut my flowers, sun, grass and bg paper are from my scrapbin. The sentiment is from the Think Spring stamp set from Cardz TV Stamps. Mary has some awesome stamps. Head over and check them out! Don't forget to check out the creations that my DT Sisters have created for insiration. Awesomeness for sure!!! You have until 9 pm, Saturday, March 31st. to link your creation. I'm so looking forward to visiting you and admiring what you make. Sure hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
