Thank Ewe

I really like how this card turned out.  It is for a couple of challenges and for my daughter.  She needed a thank you card for a lady who mentored her for a school project.

Cooking With Cricut Challenge #73 This week the Cooking With Cricut challenge is a sketch, and pick three, (ribbon, flowers, glitter, stickles, brads eyelets,border punch, chalk or ink. Here is the sketch.

I followed the sketch but forgot about the pick three. 
The next challenge is the Cricut Cardz challenge.  I submitted a card for the last challenge and I won the give-away, which is a set of Cardz Tv stamps!! I'm so excited!  I can't wait to get them!!!
 For Cricut Cardz Challenge #102, “A Stitch in Time”, make a card for any occasion using real or faux stitching and use any cartridges or colors you’d like.

For the 5 x 7 card I used my trusty Create A Critter cartridge.  My Little lamb is on page 71 and I cut her at 3.5" .  The papers for the card are from DCWV Lemon Flower Stack.  Yellow is usually not at the top of my list of colors, but I love this stack.  The colors are great and coordinate well.  I added some black faux stitiching and some silver pearls to finish up the front.
For the inside I used the American Cricut Alphabet that came with my Expression 2 (which I also love).  I cut the letters from Font 1 at 1 inch. Then with the Cricut Craft Room, I took the shadows of the letters at the same size and welded them together.  So I glued the individual letters onto the welded shadow. 
Thanks for Coming by and y'all come back again soon,
Cindy :)
