Sucked him in!!!

Heh heh heh! I sucked Jonah into the Cricut vortex. He decided to make a card tonight for his secret pal. He has to save it until June, but he has it made. SO ..... if your kid is playing in the Quacker kids' QSS, don't let him/her see this! :)

Jonah used pink SU cardstock and some blue he had sitting in his stash. He inked around the edges of the duck to define it from the background. The fish were stamped from Whale Wishes in Night of Navy. The duck card was cut using the Cricut and the Cricut Design Studio - of course. :)

I cut 3 of these cards the other day in 3 different colors and completed one today. I'm not sure that I'm really pleased with the card, but it gives me a starting point for the next one. The butterfly is cut from apricot cardstock from SU and the flower is in Almost Amethyst. I cut a green background with leaves to give dimension. The butterfly combo set was used again to add the butterfly to the flower. Versamark ink was used to cover the butterfly and accent the debossed areas. The middle of the butterfly was scored to allow the wings to stand up and give dimension to the card. Stampin' Dimensionals were used to attach the flower to the card backing to set it off from the leaves on the background and clear Stickles were used to accent the edges and add some sparkle to the petals.

Like I said, I'm not sure this is what I really wanted with this card, but I'd love to hear what you think!

Stamp happy, and remember that there's a great, big, beautiful tomorrow shining at the end of every day!!!
