Blue Skies at FCCB

Woohoo!  It's Challenge Me Monday #61 at Fantabulous Cricut.

In celebration of  glorious spring weather, this week we're including a cloud, the color blue, and, as always, a Cricut cut in our designs.


I went a little embellishment-crazy on this card!  The sun is from Create a Critter, the cloud  from April Showers, and the leaves from Florals Embellished (ok, I admit it - the flower is there too, but I added some inking that I didn't like so I covered it with Prima flowers).  The sentiment is stamped on a Nestabilities scalloped mat  and heat embossed.  I added dimension to the cloud with the Divine Swirls embossing folder.  The dragonfly is a stamp from Pez-a-doodles. The set included the colored skittles.  I outlined the wings, head and flight trail with my 3-D glazed pen.  As you can see, I used Stickles everywhere and a few Liquid Pearls for good measure.  Some inking and foam dimensionals finished this 5 x 7 card.

Be sure to visit FCCB to see the other team members' projects and then link yours to be eligible for this week's prize.

Hugs and Happy Crafting,

I really like this, all the dimension really adds to it and I like how you ended up doing the flower, nothing wrong with extra embellishing as far as I am concerned! ;)
