Cricut Meets Papertrey!

Good morning to you! Like much of the country, we are expecting a huge snow storm tomorrow night. I guess the weatherman thinks it could be up to a foot of snow. Ick. I am so ready for spring! I am tired of the cold, tired of shoveling, tired of the heavy clothes.......but I guess I can't control Mother Nature! So in my attempt to hurry winter along, I created a spring card using my Martha Stewart's Crafts All Occasions Cake Cricut Cartridge. (Say that 10 times fast!) I cut the bird, branch, and leaves with this cartridge at 3 1/2" To add a bit of dimension, I inked the leaves, folded them in half, and inked the seam, and then pinched the ends to make the leaves pop up a bit. The flowers were cut using dies from Papertrey Ink. Papers are from Papertrey Ink and Girl's Paperie. I wanted the bird/flowers to stand out, so I placed them against a white doily, against a white background, which was Cuttlebugged with the Polka Dots folder. I tied some twine under the flower to finish it off!
Oh! and did I mention there was glitter involved? ; )

A foot of snow Tuesday night? mmmmmmm.........maybe a snow day perhaps? ; )
Have a fabulous Monday!!!!

Beautiful card Michele, and that flower is gorgeous. Is that snow ever going to let up? You guys have sure had your fair share. We had a little rain late yesterday evening and thru the night here on the west coast. I am about an hour and a half from CHA, so that means they had the same. They are all so busy inside, I doubt they even realized. Have a great day.
