Hope everyone in the Eastern Coast is doing well and are safe after being hit with the effects of Hurricane/Toprical Storm Irene. I, for one, was hit with the rain and winds, but THANKFULLY nothing serious. Some nearby cities were hit really hard and have some damages as well as flooding. I hope everyone stays safe during this time.
Onto this week's Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #75. This week its all about a SPLASH OF COLOR: YELLOW. Simply create a project using the color YELLOW.
Last week, FCCB had the honor to be sponsored by American Crafts. Not did they sponsor FCCB, but they were soo kind to send me some of their RECENTLY RELEASED "Garden Cafe" Collection - which I used for my Sunflower Pot Card. Aren't the patterns just lovely?!
The Flower Pot is actually from the Cricut Freshly Picked Cartridge cut at 5-1/4". I used Design Studio to weld two of Flower Pot shadows to form the card base. The leaves and "sunflowers" were cut several time to give the card some layers.
The edges of each "Sunflower" was inked in YELLOW. I replaced a smaller flower, with two ovals from Plantin SchoolBook covered in "Coffee Bean" flocking powder. I added three small pearls from Recollections(Michaels' Brand). I think it makes my "Sunflower" look more realistic.
This time I tried a new bow-tying technique for my "Golden Harvest" Crinkled Ribbon - available at My Craft Spot. I'm not too sure how much I like it. To it I tied a YELLOW inked tag with a sentiment from the SMS "Sweet Somethings" Stamp Set with YELLOW twine.
For the inside, I left it blank for a personal message.
Ok, NOW its your turn! Create a project with a SPLASH OF COLOR: YELLOW and link it up to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog by Sunday, September 4th 11:59PM EST for your chance to win this week's prize.
