You can do it!

I have not tried any of the challenges before but thought I would give the one at 'Cricut Cardz Challenge' a try. It is to create a card using a bird or butterfly from any cartridge, using any colors and any theme. Since I seem to not be able to get away from my Create-a-Critter cartridge, I just had to do the butterfly from it. Everything that I used to make my card is from scraps from my scrap bin except the black. Already used all the scrap black I had! The card base is green cut at 5 1/2X8 and folded in half to make an A2 card. The layer on front and the bottom one inside are cut at 5 1/4X3 3/4 from DCWQV pocketfall of green-posie glitter print. The top layer inside is cut at 4 3/4X3 1/4 in yellow. The butterfly and inside catapillar are cut at 2 1/2 base and all layers. The outside catapillar is cut at 1 1/2. The  cloud is the phrase key for the catapillar cut, cut at base 2, middle 1 1/2 and top 1 and I popped doted it on. I chalked everything. Every butterfly and catapillar has to have a little bling so added some colored pearl bling and some lavender stickles to the butterfly and rock candy stickles to the cattapillars eyes. Just to give them a little sparkle. I popped dotted the butterfly so she would stand out. The 'You can do it' is a My Pink Stamper stamp from the Everyday Occasions set.
I am going to give this one to our oldest Granddaughter. She's 17 and starts her first job Thurs. I'm about as excited as she is! She will be working at the grocery store that I am an assistant manager at and I'll be there while she is training. Okay, chattered enough. Hope ya'll like my card!! :)
I was told that my card fit the requirements for Sherri at  http://jitterbugginchallenge.blogspot.com/  card challenge also so I entered it into that one, too! So exciting!! I just now figured out how to edit a post. Duh!!! It was easy after I figured it out. Don't know why I thought it was so hard!!! LOLOL :)

This card is AWESOME! I'm so glad you decided to try one of Mary's challenges. I just love her blogs!! You know, I don't ever really do anything with the inside of the cards I make. I did this week put a stamp sentiment and a doghouse cut on the inside of one, but other than that, I haven't done the inside. Your inside looks so beautiful! Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. Now that you've done such a bang up job on Mary's challenge, I hope you'll participate in mine. :) It's to make a bookmark. Anything goes. Ends Sunday night. I'm so glad I found your blog! :) Janis
