Happy Monday! Today's card was made for the challenge over at My Pink Stamper. The challenge was to make a winter card, scrapbook page or other craft item with your cricut. This is what I came up with:

Please excuse the picture. No matter how many times I took it, it just wasn't coming out the way I wanted. I think it may be because of all the metallic papers.

For my card, I used Lacy Labels Cricut Lite cartridge. I used my Gypsy to weld the images to form the shape card at 5". I used DCWV metallic silver for the bottom layer and DCWV metallic light blue for the frame layer. For the snowflakes, I used some white flocking powder to give it a bit of a "snowy" feel. For the phrase, I used Winter from Gypsy Wanderings cut out at 1 1/2" for both the shadow as well as the phrase itself. Added a little bit of outlining with my white signo gel pen and added a white satin bow.

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look, I really appreciate it. Don't forget about the DT call over at Paper Therapy. Scroll down one post to read more about it.

I know, I know, it is only August but I just love halloween and had to make a halloween card for the challenge over at 40:31 Creations. For her challenge we had to create a card or layout with a halloween theme and use our cricut/gypsy. Here is mine:

For my card, I used 2 cricut cartridges. I cut out the flourish, scallop circle and the white circle from Storybook and cut out the white scallop border using Plantin Schoolbook. So sorry for the picture. The card base is actually a deep purple called concord crush from SU. I can never seem to take very good pics when it comes to purple. :(

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and take a look! :)
