Cute as a Bug...that's the theme (updated with winner!)

....at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog this week. There are so many cute bugs on so many different Cricut cartridges it was hard to choose. I ended up with this one.



Dot
This is Dot from the Disney Best of Pixar cartridge. I love the Disney cartridges, but they are notorious for the tiny pieces so she is cut at 4 1/2" and popped up with some foam tape. I used her name to help with the rest of the design of the card by cutting circles with a Sizzix die and creating a circle shaped flower. The finished card is a 6x6. The patterned paper is from Prima and the solid is a mix of stash and paper from Recollections and The Paper Studio. I made the flower from bakers twine, fluffed it and glued a button from my stash in the center. The stem is lime green rattail cord that was glued in place with some Scotch quick dry glue. The seam binding is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Have a super week everyone!

**I did this post before the end of my give away from last week and forgot to post the winner. I went to random.org and it decided that #17 was the winner. Congratulations Mollie! I'll be contacting you for your address.

  5. I also love the Disney cartridges, and agree that they require some small cuts. I usually opt to use a gel pen instead. I love your card, it's super cute.
