Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge #7: Thank You Color Challenge

This weeks Cricut Circle Challenge is all about saying "Thank You" Cultivating an attitude of gratitude is a great way to enrich our daily lives. This week's challenge is to create a THANK YOU card using a minimum of 2 different Cricut Cuts and the color inspiration provided below.

Magenta, Apricot, Deep Olive, and Golden Yellow. The color inspiration came from this photo, an aerial view of tulip fields.


Isn't this beautiful? Makes me want to hop a plane for Holland! So feeling inspired and motivated to try out my new Gypsy I decided to create a card from my Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge.


I am so thrilled with how my little owl turned out! I cut him at 5" tall. I liked the pink I chose but once I assembled him I decided that it could use a little shimmer... so I added some Scarlet Glimmer Mist! The yellow doesn't show up great in the photo but I wanted to capture the shimmer on the owl. To finish him off I added some gold i-rock studs to his wings. I just LOVE my i-rock!!! I used my Gypsy to weld two of the owl shadows together to create the card base.


Since the challenge is for a "Thank You" card that's what I turned this into but you could really use this for anything! I grabbed my Wild Card cartridge for the "Heartfelt Thanks" sentiment. I cut it at 2" from the Orange and the Pink and then cut it apart to layer it. I had fun with this challenge and I really want to make more fun animal cards with this cartridge!
