It's A Spring Thing

Morning, Morning, Morning!!!! Has Spring finally sprung? Oh I sure hope so!!! I'm ready and I know you are too!!!
We have a great challenge for you at Exploring Cricut. We are celebrating Spring, but with a twist. Diane challenged us to create a project using at least one button, 2 Cricut Cuts and 3 Colors of Pattern Paper or Cardstock. Now how fun is that?!!
I decided to pull out my poor neglected Create A Critter 2 cartridge to use to make my card. I went with a 6x6 so I could get what I wanted on it and it not be crowded. I cut the tulips on page 42 at 2.25 inches. The butterfly from page 41 at 1.75 inches. The grass (which I welded together so I could have it all the way across) from page 42 at 2.43 inches. And the 'sun' is the burst from page 52 and I cut it at 2.25 inches. I also did a little bit of doodling. The faces are from Peachy Keen Stamps. Snow Cuties-PK-500, Happy Lashes-PK-460 and Simply Simons-PK-530. My sentiments are from the 'Think Spring' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.  That's it.
Head on over to Exploring Cricut and check out the creations that my DT Sisters and Brother made for some inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!! Then head to your crafty space and create a new project (no back links please) and come by and link it up. Make sure you follow the requirements of our challenge. At least 1 Button, 2 Cricut Cuts and 3 Colors of Pattern Paper or Cardstock. You have until 10pm, EST on Saturday, April 13th to link. Looking forward to seeing your creation!! Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
