BBTB2 - Things that fly in nature

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Hope you had a great weekend! Monday again and time for another fun and inspirational Cricut challenge at BBTB2! For this challenge, our talented design team sister Sandi chose the theme "Things that fly in nature", any project using dragon flies, bees, butterflies, etc.
My card is 5" x 7" cut from Colorbok white cardstock. I was so happy to find this pretty butterfly paper in my stash!
Cricut Cartridges:
Florals Embellished - Page 66 Butterfly3 cut 3" using papers from the scrap stash. Page 60 - Circle3 cut at 2.5" from white and purple papers for the mat.
Straight from the Nest - Page 34 Phrase Fly is cut at 1.25".
Martha Stewart - Doily lace trim
Pop dots are used on the mat and butterfly for added dimension.

Visit BBTB2 to see all the lovely projects by the talented design team. For more information on the projects, visit the individual blogs and leave a little love for the designers! Now it is your turn to play along with us. Remember you must use a Cricut cut for the things that fly in nature and please tell us which Cricut cartridge you used!

  8. This is just lovely, Glenda. I love the vibrant colors of the paper. The background paper is just perfect for the butterfuly to sit on. I have that Florals Embellished and haven't used it in a very long time. In fact, I think I've only used it once. I'm going to have to get that cartridge out and have a go at it again.
