Looks Like Spring!

Thanks for joining us for another challenge with the lovely ladies at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog!  I hope you stopped by the main blog to see all of the other awesome spring themed projects from the awesome design team!

I love this bird!  How stinkin' adorable.  I cut this bird at 3.5 inches from the Nate's ABC cartridge and I love how it turned out.  I am so glad I've been spending some time digging through my stash of papers to use up.  The cloud paper I used is from K and Company--I love it!  I'm sure I picked it up just because I thought I needed clouds--but upon further investigation I LOVE the gridlines on this paper-- it's in an Old Olive-ish color and I really like it. 

I've not played a lot with this cartridge but I do love the layers it offers and the attention to detail in each of the layers is fun.  I did tweak the beak on the bird a little bit as I didn't like how the worm or something or other looked in his mouth :) So I chopped it off!  I also changed up this card by not using a standard A-2 size.  This card will fit in a business size envelope easily.  Enjoy!
