MPS Design Team Challenge

I made this card for the My Pink Stamper Design Team Challenge. Two people will be chosen to serve on her design team, which sounds like a great opportunity! The challenge was to make a project using her favorite colors: pink, green, brown, and another color of your choice. I love MPS videos - I attribute much of my Cricut knowledge to her videos and tutorials, so thanks Robyn for all the instruction and inspiration! Keep it coming!

I chose to use my Cricut Imagine to make this birthday card. I fell in love with one of the frame designs on the Imagine More Cartridge (LOVE the rich colors), but I didn't love the "chick" that was included with the artwork, so I decided to use different elements instead. The A2 base of the card is Papertrey Ink in Sweet Blush. I then cut a rectangle at 4 1/4" using a patterned paper on the same cartridge. I then cut the "happy birthday" frame at 3 3/4", and I cut all the layers separately, not flattened. The butterfly is cut at 1 1/4" with a pattern from Imagine More Cards as well. The butterfly needed some subtle bling, so I added some self-adhesive pearls from Close to My Heart. The layers were then put together using pop dots, and a Offray grosgrain ribbon was added to one side.

Cartridge: Imagine More Cards
Paper: Bazzil white cardstock, Papertrey Ink
Ribbon: Offray
Pearls: Close to My Heart
