I have made this card to share with you.... I used the Cricut cartridge American Alphabet...

My card today is a typical A2 sized card.  Each layer is 1/4 inch smaller than the one before.  The background paper is from DCWV The Glitter Matt Stack.  Thebutterfly was cut at 2.5 using layers and shadow.  My ribbon is from Wal-Mart.  The little flower button was from my stash.  My sentiment if from K Andrew Designs "Winged Things"!  I added some Copper Pearl Liquid Pearls, which can be found in Erica's webstore.  

For my second project, I used Beyond Birthdays Cartridge.......

Another A2 sized card.  My base is Color Bok, the background layer and the orange glitter oval is paper I received from Erica's webstore.  My ribbon is from Wal-Mart.  The image was cut at 2.5 using the layer feature.  I used Liquid Pearls in Flamingo and Daffodil for the center of the flowers.  I added some pink and white twin from The Twinery.  Both the oval and image are popped up using foam squares from Recollections.  My sentiment is from K Andrew Designs "Scripture Sayings" stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on a ticket using the EK Success Ticket punch.  I teeny tiny butterfly is punched using a Studio G mini punch.  I inked around the edges with some green Martha Stewart ink.  

For my final project today, I used Block Party Cartridge......

All of my paper is from Color Bok.  Dad was cut at 3 inches and the bar-b-que pit was cut at 2.5 inches.  I cut the grass with my Martha Stewart fringe scissors.  My sentiment is from K Andrew's "Guy Talk". 

I hope you enjoyed my projects today!
