Here is the card I made for My Pink Stamper's 500 million Bird Challenge. I found Robyn's (My Pink Stampers) blog last spring when I was looking for videos on how to etch glass with your Cricut. I've been hooked ever since. In fact, she's the reason I started my own blog. She has been a wonderful source of inspiration to me, and she deserves every bit of her success. If you haven't checked her out, DO SO!!!
Back to my card...
I ordered the CottageCutz penguin die a while back. My fiancee is obsessed with penguins, so I thought this die would come in very handy. I just got a Cuttlebug, so of course when I heard bird challenge I immediately thought of my penguins. At first, I made traditional black and white penguins, but they did not match my card very well, so I decided to make them pink. I think the penguins turned out super cute.
I also tried a new format or layout (or whatever!) with my card. I put a different color border in-between the two main pieces of paper. See it just above the ribbon? I though it added a little something. For my sentiment, I used My Pink Stamper's "Tweetie Hoo Puns" stamps. MPS has awesome stamps...again, you should check her out if you haven't already. Anyway, I'll get off of my soapbox and show you my card. I hope you enjoy!! Look for a non paper crafting project later in the week (yes, it still involves the cricut!!)
