Scrappy Mom Terrific Tuesday Challenge

I FINALLY made it into my craft room. After a bought of crafter's block, I'm ready to get going again. This is for the very first Terrific Tuesday challenge over at Scrappy Moms Stamps.

The challenge was to use the Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge. If you don't own Birthday Bash, you were to use something similar. I don't own it, so I used Create-A-Critter. Here's what I came up with:

I'll have to admit, I cut the hat a little backwards. The image has the hat and a pinwheel on it. So I used the "Fit to Page" button, which cut the image at 8 inches. The hat ended up being about 3.5 inches. I added a little bling with Stickles. The sentiment is from a stamp set that I bought at Michael's on clearance this past weekend. They have a lot of stamps marked down to below $5.

This card will be for a very special person. One of my besties has a daughter with Down Syndrome. She'll be 9 in a few weeks and of course her favorite color is purple. I hope she likes it.

Stay Crafty
