BBTB2 - Sun Challenge

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy Monday! Time for another fun and inspirational Cricut challenge at BBTB2! Our talented design team sister Susanne is hostess this week and she chose "Here Comes The Sun". We are ask to use a Cricut sun to celebrate Summer! The sun can be from any Cricut cartrige and you may do a card, layout, or a 3D project!
My card is 5" x 6 1/2" white cardstock. I was happy to find the tropical paper in my scrap paper stash and was inspired to make this little beach scene. All my papers are from the scrap stash.

Cricut Cartridge: Pack Your Bags
Page 44 - Phrase cut 1.25" 80 degrees and Sunny. Of course, it is much hotter at my home!
Page 67 - Beach scene cut 4.25".
Page 30 - Stamp cut 1". Such a cute little sandcastle!
Divine Swirls - Water
Swiss Dots - Sand
Textile - Umbrella
Floral Fantasy - Little flower on the sandbucket
Spellbinders M-Bossabilities - Flora Reversible Folder- Design B. These are pretty and economical folders because you get two designs. I do cut these with my Cuttlebug. After embossing,  I used the reverse side of the design on the top of the card. I like the looks of the indented leaves with the tropical background paper.

Visit BBTB2 to see all the lovely Sun projects by the talented design team. For more information on the projects, please visit the individual blogs and leave a little love! We love your visits and comments!
Now it is time for you to play along! Remember you must include a Cricut Sun on your project. We look forward to seeing your pretty projects! One project will be selected to receive the Project of the Week badge. It could be you!
