Dusting off the Cricut and Challenges

Well this was a real learning day lol!  Never try a new technique..on a project..due out the next day! So many talented card makers make distressing paper with ink look...easy. Well this is my first attempt with Tim Holtz. First I was just going to ink the edges..a little got on other parts of the card, so I inked the whole thing. *sigh*. The one thing I did find was a "stay put bow, stay put ribbon tutorial". Thank you Michelle!  Yeah I know I am a little behind.  The bride was a freebie from the good people over at SVG cuts, she has a cute tutorial on making a card with this cut as well.  Thanks for listening to me rehash this experience lol.  I have entered this card in the following challenges:
  1. Stamp Something: Celebrate
  2. Sew Many Cards: Anything Goes
  3. Catch the Bug: Anything Goes
  4. Stampin B's: Red White and Black card
  5. Sweet Stampin: Punch it out
  6. Stamp Scrap and Doodle: Open Challenge
  7. One Stop Craft Challenge: Congratulations
  8. Incy Wincy Designs: Sparkly Glitter
A special thank you to all the crafter that take the time and interest to provide us with challenges to keep us motivated.
