When time is not your friend, 2 challenges in one card!!

Sometimes I find I dont have enough time in the day to do more than one challenge! That is a joy of having children that either need a diaper, a bottle, or a cuddle..or sometimes in my son’s case a puzzle afternoon, and my daughter the bottle, diaper and cuddle! So on those busy days, I try and combine the challenges I can! Today I went over to the  http://colorthrowdown.blogspot.com  where I discovered the colours were : pink pirouette, melon mambo and baja breeze! Looked fun and exciting 🙂  Then I mosied on over to http://www.cricutcardzchallenge.blogspot.com which was a  new place for me to visit. The challenge # 25,was to make a card with a bird or a butterfly using any cartridges, colors or theme you’d like. So since I could combine the two, thats what I did!!

Here are the details. I took a piece of what looked like baja breeze (Really just cardstock from my scrap stash!), and made a 6×6 card. Then I took some pink pirouette paper and edged it with my loopy martha stewart craft punch. I adhered some polkadot ribbon to the pink, and to that a melon mambo scalloped circle. Then I cut my bird from my home decor cricut cartridge, and added some bling, and hand stitching and doodling! I had an imaginisce stamp that said so tweet, so I practiced writing like that, and added the word “you”. Then I took my scallop oval punch from stampin out and stamped the word Friend on it in baja breeze using A Little Somethin’ hostess set. I distressed the edges in baja breeze too! Hope you like the card! Thanks for looking!
