Design Team Day ~ Flower Box Card

Hi Everyone! Today is my day to post at Connie Can Crop's blog. I want to share with you a card I made that goes along with Connie's challenge! Lets start with me never having done a box card before. I was always so over whelmed by them! My DT sister Kim is always making them, and making them look so easy! So I gave it a spin. I love them! And I love how my card came out! LOL

I used a file from Lori Whitlock that I bought from the silhouette store. All of my paper is scrap from my stash. The middles of the flowers (the purple flowers) are a fabric/foam flower that I have had for a long time.

I'm going to put this card in the gift basket we are giving to my sons teacher at the end of the school year (next week! Yikes!)

My neighbor just bought a Cricut Expression from a local yard sale page and had no idea how to work it. So, I dusted off my E2 and worked along side her. I haven't used that machine in the longest time so I was a little rusty! I used the create a critter cartridge and came up with this little card. Super simple, but I do love it :)

Connie Can Crop Monthly Challenge #58

Time for another monthly challenge with Connie! This one is the inspiration challenge, and she wants you to use the following picture as your guide! 

I created a card using lots of flowers! No die cuts on this one, as I'm trying to use up my piles and piles of random things! 

I used a die and sentiment from Jaded Blossom. All of the flowers were leftovers from sets I bought from a craft expo one year. The purple tape came from Connie's Crafty Cart. 

Can't wait to see what you come up with! Click HERE for all the details and to enter the challenge this month!
