FCCB 223 - Sketch Challenge

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #223 Sketch Challenge

This Weeks Sponsor
Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons
~This Weeks Challenge~

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

For my card this week  I used the Straight From The Nest Cricut cartridge for the egg border, nest and sentiment.

The sweet birdie is a digi stamp from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons - our sponsor this week! I coloured him in with Prismacolor Markers and popped him up on top of my diecuts.

I cut the base egg border layer from blue Core'dinations paper and sanded it a bit and then added the top egg layer using watercolour paper and colouring with Distress Stains.  I sprayed over top with some Perfect Pearls mist to create a shimmer.

 The nest negative was perfect for creating a stencil inside my card, adding the sentiment from Pretty Cute Stamps - Wish Big set.

Hope you all have a lovely week, and be sure to join us at the Fantabulous Cricut blog to check out the other amazing projects by our talented Design Team.  You can enter your own project there too and have a chance to win a great prize from our sponsor this week!

Happy Crafting!
