Cooking with Cricut # 77: St. Patricks Day

I am simply thrilled to be continuing on with Cooking with Cricut!  This group is an amazing bunch of talented crafters, and we are welcoming in some talented new members. I hope you take the time to check out all of their fantastic projects. This week we are celebrating St. Patrick's Day with a rainbow theme! I have to admit I was a little at a loss with what to do with my project until I realized all the different ways you could utilize a 'rainbow' on your card. In this particular card I was inspired by one I found on Pinterest here. Here it is:
I used some patterned paper for some of the butterflies, and added some embossing and ribbon. I REALLY love clean and simple (CAS) cards. I think less is more sometimes! For the butterflies I cut them from the Storybook cart and used the 'flip' feature on my Cricut to get the butterflies to 'fly' in opposite directions. I popped them up on foam dots so they could stand out a bit more. The sentiment stamp is from Whimsical Designs.
I hope you enjoy my card and can't wait to see the colorful creations you all come up with! Please come join us!
