FCCB Challenge Me Monday #104

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Mine was fabulous but not nearly long enough.  My husband and I attended Strong Bonds, which is a couple's retreat for members of the military and their spouse.  I was a little apprehensive about going, mainly because I wasn't really sure what to expect.  However, to any military spouse out there I highly recommend it.  I actually got a lot out of it.  Plus, it was just kind of nice to get away.

It's Monday which means another challenge at FCCB.  This is the last week of March and as the saying goes, it comes in like a lion and out like a lamb.  So, this week we want to see your projects with gentle animals on them (lamb, kitten, puppy, etc.).

A good friend of mine is pregnant with their first child.  She is due in August and found out that they will be having a boy.  As I was looking through my cartridges, I found an adorable image on Sugar and Spice.  I have had the cartridge for awhile and never used it.  I am really bad about that. :)  The base of my card was cut at 5" x 6.5" and the mat was cut at 4.5" x 6".  Both the lamb and bear came from Sugar and Spice and were cut at 2.5"  The baby blocks came from New Arrival and were cut at 2".  I originally had them cut at 2.5" but they were way too big.  The border came from Elegant Edges and was resized in my Gypsy.  I also added some Vintage Photo distress ink to it to give it a different look.  Finally, I added some glossy accents, chalk, and doodling.

Pin It

Items Used:
New Arrival, Sugar and Spice, and Elegant Edges Cricut cartridges
