FCCB & BBTB2 Weekly Challenges

Hey All!
 How is everyone doing after the nice weekend break?
Ready to start a new week and a couple of new challenges?

We've got a challenge underway over at

Challenge #24 Camp Out

This Weeks Sponsor

Pretty Cute Stamps
~This Week's Challenge~
Camp Out
Create a project inspired by the outdoors

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

AND over at BBTB2
Bitten by the Bug 2
we have the challenge starting of
Let The SUN Shine In!

Create a project featuring a Sun!

So here is my card I created combining the two:

I used Campin' Critters for the fabulous outdoor scene
and the sun I cut from Accent Essentials.

My papers were all from my scrap stash,
but if I remember right, the blue is from a ColorBok (WalMart) paper pack
and the polka dot is from a DCWV pack.

I found some awesome wooden buttons to use
and some brown ric-rac to create a nice border
between the two b/g mats.

I've popped up the scene on some foam tape,
but the sun is adhered straight on the mat.
There is some great dimension on this card that
the camera just doesn't pick up.

Lastly, the sentiment - it's from CardzTV - and I know
I recently used this same sentiment, but I LOVE it,
so I used it again and it is perfect for this card!

I hope that you will join us over at FCCB & BBTB2
for these challenges!
