Cricut Circle May Monthly Challenge


This is my entry for the May Cricut Circle Montly Challenge. It is a Tic Tac Toe Challenge, where you have to pick three in a row on this chart.
I chose the bottom row. My flip-flops and sunglasses, from Pack Your Bags, were cut at 3" on my Imagine, using colors and a pattern from the All Wrapped Up Imagine cartridge. My teammate Leanne inspired me with the flowers on the flip-flops. She used fabric ones on this adorable card. Then, I was at a scrapbooking class at Emma's (My Creative Time) yesterday, and she had us making a layout with some paper ones that she had bought. They looked pretty easy to make, so I tried it for this card. I layered three 1" daisies from Walk in My Garden and then a 0.4" circle (that turned out looking like a lemon for some reason) on top. For my embossing, I used the Cuttlebug Seeing Spots Embossing Folder, and used my Scor-Pal to score a line where the embossing ended.


My sentiment is one of my FAVORITES from My Creative Time's "Have Fun in the Sun" stamp set. Isn't it the cutest? I heat embossed it with some white embossing powder, and I love how it looks against the black cardstock.

Okay this is seriously SO flippin' CUTE. I LOVE these flip flops too. I could add a whole bunch to my collection if they really sold all these cute shoes you girls make. I wish I could have been at Emma's class with you. Someday we will hopefully meet. You are amazing! Hugs- Glora
