Cricut Cardz Challenge #67: Spring in pink,green and white!

Welcome to Friday! The  first full week of spring here in western Newfoundland started out with somewhat springlike weather ( hey, it was in the plus-es!!!!) but today and yesterday the temps have dropped and it's even snowing!!!! What was the saying ,"  March : in like a lion, out like a lamb?" Hmm, maybe not here!!!  Thankfully, the DT at Cricut Cardz Challenge are helping us get in the mood for spring with this week's challenge. This week we 've been presented with the colors Pink, Green and White to make a card and we can use any cartridge we'd like! And , just in case you need some help with ideas, check out the DT#2 fabulous samples! It's pretty cool to see how people can take this prompt and come up such amazing creations!
 I started out with a concept and halfway through I tossed it!!! Back to the drawing board for me!!!

Here's what I came with for this week's challenge......

I used my new cart Freshly Picked for this one. The gazebo is cut in Real Size at 4.5 inches. I originally had cut it in white but it was too plain against the floral DP , so I cut it in two shades of green , I think it looks much better this way!!! Instead of using the matching flowers I used my SU flower brads and added a mini pearl to each center.The sentiment is from SU. I also used my butterfly embosslit , cause my Cricut just cannot cut those teensy weensy butterflies! I had rickrack on the side , but again, I didn't like it , so I kept it fairly plain, as all those flower and butterflies add more than enough details!!
Here's another view of the flower and butterfly accents......

So , there's my card for this week's challenge! I hope you enjoy and please take a moment to go and check out all those fabulous entries!!
Have a great day and until next time........


  1. What a PRETTY card for the CCC challenge! I have that cartridge on order, and didn't realize there was a gazebo on it. Now I'm REALLY excited! I wouldn't have thought to cut it in greens, and it's BEAUTIFUL. Thanks for the inspiration!
    Cheers, Karen
