FCCB Challenge #153 Spring is in the Air

Happy Monday Everyone!! Is it me or did the weekend just go by way to fast ?! I woke up this morning to another, 6" of snow. Okay, so I know I love in Minnesota, but it's supposed to be spring now. We have probably about close to 3 feet all together, YUCK !! So with that being said, I think this weeks challenge is just what we need to give winter the hint to move along.
This weeks challenge at Fantabulous Cricut is, Spring is in the air. For this card I decided to use my cricut imagine. The cartridge I used was the cricut imagine "Best Friends" cartridge. I cut the kite part out twice, one using the combined feature and one using the layers feature. I cut this as 3" and popped the kite and the clouds up to give them so dimension. I then added some of my FAVORITE twine by Timeless Twine, called Natural. This stuff is in stock and ready to ship if you are interested in your own spool. My sentiment was from one of my Scrappy Mom Stamp Sets, I am so excited that I am guest designer for them next month :) I then just added some ribbon, brad and some rhinestones to finish it up. I hope you all enjoyed my card and remember we all just need to think spring !! Hope you will find time to join us this week. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Very pretty. Love the lace bottom

  2. Great card! I love the twine and brad!! I pulled my Imagine out with the intentions of using Best Friends for my card as well (had the same background paper in mind and everything!). Too bad my Imagine wouldn't fully turn on and work for me. :-( Good thing though because our cards would have been so similar! LOL!

  3. This is great, I like the lace and brads you added, and great background paper!!

  4. What a happy, spring time card! I love kites - they just always remind me of spring breezes and sunshine. Wish I could bottle up some of our springlike weather and send it your way!
    How exciting to be guest designer at Scrappy Mom Stamps! I love her stamps and look forward to seeing what you do with them - congrats!

  5. So very pretty, I just love the colors on this card!! The lace and the brad is such a nice added detail too!!
