Challenge Card: Cricut Cardz and Cupcake Craft

I am so so happy that I finally got my Gypsy and got the uploads working. This is my first project using the Gypsy; and I told my husband that this may be my 4th child! I LOVE it! I made this card for the Cardz TV Christmas in July Challenge #1. The only colors that could be used were pink, red, green, black and white. This stumped me for a while; but, I finished it! :)
I also decided to use this card for the Cupcake craft challenge. Since, ice skating is a favorite sport in our household!!
I decided to make a card that could be used as a Christmas tree ornament. Normally, I would have my kids pose for a nice picture; but, my girls are at camp. Note to self.... take more shots of all 3 together!!

I used Winter Woodlands for the ice skater. I chose this because my daughters love to ice skate and are in a production every December. I used liquid glass on the ice skates and "puffy" paint on the trim and cuffs of the dress. I used Wild Card for the card base and layer. The layer was also a card which I cut and used half on the front and half on the back.

This was a great challenge since it was over 100 degrees in Maryland today. I had to "think" ice to stay alive! :)

Thanks for stopping by!!

Peace and Love!
