A Treemendous Card!

Happy Monday, Everyone! I hope it's beautiful and sunny where you are! It's time for another "Challenge Me Monday" over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and today's challenge is to use a tree or tree branch somewhere in your project. I've been using my Cindy Loo cartridge a bit more lately and I saw the perfect cut for this challenge.
Here is what was used to create this card:
Cricut Cartridge ~ Cindy Loo
Gypsy ~ I welded 2 shadow cuts for my base
Cardstock ~ Recollections and DCWV Autumn Splendor
Cuttlebug ~ Swiss Dots embossing folder
Ranger Distress Ink ~ Brushed Corduroy
Sakura Gelly Roll Pen ~ White
Ribbon ~ Hobby Lobby
Pop Dots, Glue Dots, ATG

Now this partricular cut on Cindy Loo does not have layers so I cut it out several times so that I could have green leaves and pop the frame up from the rest of the card. I also cut out a seperate bird and all its layers.

Well that's it for today. I hope you will pop on over to Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to see what my fellow designers have to inspire you with today. Join in the challenge, there is always great prizes to be won!

Happy Crafting!
