Fantabulous Cricut & Peachy Keen Challenge

Good morning all, I hope the weather is being kind to you where ever you may be in the world. My very dear friend is in the middle of all the floods in Brisbane, Australia and although her and her family are safe as they are on fairly high ground she says the devastation all around them is awful and being a nurse she is having to deal with it first hand. I wish all those people effected a safe return home.

Anyhow, enough of my rambling today I have a card for you that I made following the Peachy Keen Challenge 'sketch' and the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge theme of 'Winter Warmies' e.g any type of clothing or accessory that keeps us warm in winter. This had me a little stuck to start with because all I could think of was Christmas card's but I have had enough of those for a while then I remembered my hubby's friend's birthday in February and he is an avid skier who spends every birthday on the slopes and thought this would be perfect.

I am really trying to use my Cricut more this year as I don't think I use it anywhere near as much as I could, so it was all I used for this card!! I was going to use flower soft on the mitten cuffs and hat brim and bobble but decided to try out some Enamel Accents which I have had forever lol and I quite like the effect.


Supplies:-
6" Square Card Blank - Craft Superstore
Designer Papers - Unknown they were a gift
Cardstock - All Bazzill and Bazzill Bling 
Shine on Cuffs & Hat - Ranger Enamel Accents 'white' 
Cricut - Provocraft
SCAL 2 - Craft Edge

Cricut Cuts:-
Circles - Accent Essentials Purple 3.6" Lilac 3.2"
Hat - Everyday Paper Dolls 1.5"
Mittens - Everyday Paper Dolls 1.2"
Skies - Everyday Paper Dolls 4.2"
Font - SCAL 2 'Cooper Md BT' 1" & Blackout Shadow +3.00
Everything was layed out using Design Studio and SCAL 2.
