Happy Spring and Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #52

Happy Spring, bloggers! Can't say I'm sorry to leave winter behind for another year! It's Challenge Me Monday at Fantabulous Cricut, and the challenge this week is Happy Birthday. This is a card I made for my Mom's friend's 70th birthday. I used my Gypsy to make the base of the card, welding a rectangle and two ovals together from Plantin Schoolbook. The inside paper is from Me & My Big Ideas and I'm not sure of the brand of the textured crimson paper. I used Cuttlebug's words embossing folder on the outside ovals. I cut a frame from the Cindy Loo cart and ran it through the Cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder. The inside of the frame is white cardstock, embossed with the birthday folder. The 70 was cut from Planitn Schoolbook, and the butterfly from Serenade, also embossed with the swiss dots folder. I added iridescent ribbon, silver brads and a velcro dot to open and close the card.
