Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge #46 - Flower Fusion

ok.. so you can imagine my diapointment with respect to all the cool Black Friday Deals going on in the US so I have been monitoring sales down there just to see what I was missing.. while I noticed that Walmart was having a great deal on a Cricut Imagine machine in the US and I was thinking if I came across one I would splurge and get one... while of course I do not live in the US however... one day while purousing the isles at M's I came across the same deal!  It was a non advertised sale... so of course I picked one up - here is my first project using the new machine...


I printed and cut the Butterfly Image from the Elegant Edges cartridge and filled it with Yellow Patterned Paper on the Image More Cartridge that comes with the Cricut Imagine machine.  It is cut at 4.5"  I then cut 2 from white cardstock to create the card base!  I also printed and cut the Spread your Wings sentiment along with an extra butterfly at 1.5" so that I could create a 3D look to the butterfly.  I also cut the Scallop Rosette from the Cricut Expression from Brown Cardstock to create the Rosette.  The Challenge for this Weeks Cricut Circle is to use flowers... I have added 4 small flower blings to the butterfly and a Paper flower to the ribbon as well as some Flower Beads to a hatpin to create the antenee for the butterfly.

Details: Cricut Imagine and Expression 2,  Cartridges:  Elegant Edges, Ribbons & Rosettes, Imagine More Cricut Cartridge, Paper Flower is Recollections, Flower Bling is from Dollarama, Flower Beads and Hatpins are from an old Scraptivity Kit.  Ribbon is a brown seambinding,  Patterned Paper:  cut on Cricut Imagaine.

Butterfly:  Elegant Edges Cartridge Filled with the Yellow PP from the Imagine More Cartridge Printed & Cut at 4.5"  Cut 2 more just in white cardstock for the base of the card.

Sentiment:  Printed & Cut from the Imagine More Cartridge at 1.5" I cut an extra butterfly.

Rosette:  Ribbons & Rosettes Cartridge Cut 6 of the at 1.5" in brown cardstock.
