Cricut Makes the Challenge

The thing that's great about crafters' blogs is that you can find so many things to inspire you to go beyond the basics of card making. One of the reasons I love Craftypagan Designs is that she uses different elements to bring out the beauty of her cards. I didn't have an animal stamp for her challenge so I used a Cricut(c) image instead. I scissor distressed the edges of the brown scrap and ink distressed the green scrap. Tying jute around the green paper gives it a bit of a creative edge and keeps "Woof" from howling of boredom. Adding brads help to bring out the green in the card. Notice that I used designer cardstock which made my crafting easier.

Rowena (Craftypagan Designs) encouraged me to enter my card into the Stamp Something Challenge - how awesome was that? Thanks for the encouragement!
