Bluebird of Happiness

Good morning! Today I am sharing my little bluebird of happiness! See all the bling! Hope the card will bring a smile!

I am excited to enter this card at a new challenge blogspot M.A.G. Challenge By The Page. Melissa, Adrian, and Gloria selected Cricut Cartridge Create A Critter page 45 for this week's challenge. Only circut cuts from the selected cartridge and page listed can be used on the card. Everything else can be embellishments. The choices on the selected page include a bird and alligator. When I saw the little bird, I knew that I wanted to make a bluebird.

Card is 6 1/2 X 5 white cardstock.

Create A Critter - Bird is cut 2 1/2 inches; Grass is cut 1 inch; Hearts cut 1 3/4 inches; and Smile is cut 1 inch in white and again in blue to offset it since there is no shadow cut for the word.

My Minds Eye Home Glitter Book - I love all the glitter on these papers... adds a lot of bling!!
Colorbok Textured Cardstock for the white.

Recollections gemstone for the eye and added a pretty blue flower.
Martha Stewart -- Edge punch and inks
Limited use of Cricut cuts really does challenge me and I enjoyed making this card!! Hope I have the cartridge for the upcoming challenge!!
