My First Cricut Card eeeek!

Happy Saturday, Hope you are all ok, How terrible was the news of that awful M5 crash, those poor people, I really feel for all involved, so sad.

I was told by hubby and scoopy yesterday that they wanted a card made using the cricut, eeek, there is so much inspiration out there that my card isnt a patch on them, I dont think its too bad for a first go lol, although its a real basic design, I hope not too basic that I have unintentionally copied someone though.

I had a scoot around the Cricut Challenges and found the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge, who host on Mondays, and the theme this week is 
"Birds"
So after checking that a Penquin is a birdie, lol, yes I had to check! my facebook friends confirmed it lol, but I googled him too and he is an Aquatic Flightless Bird rofl, yes I am just that ditzy!!!
So heres my card
 The Penquins, Leaves, Moon and stars and snowbursts (they arent snowflakes but I think they pass) where cut from the Cricut, I edged them all with silver shimmer chalk, and built up the penquins using 3d foam pads. The flowers are Wild Orchid, and the sentiment is Penny Black, I used the cuttlebug swiss dots folder over the snow, and added a little glamour dust.
It shimmers much more than I thought it would, I forgot the chalks were shimmer ones lol, but I like it, I do like pastel colour cards muchly. 

So I do hope to get better with me Cricut lol :)

Thanks for Stopping By, Stay Safe and Have a lovely Fireworks evening, not my fave night of the year! I really feel for the poor animals who are petrified of all the bangs.

This is fabulous Joey and well done you on your first card :o)) I have a Cricut Create and (shamefully) only use it to cut circles and ovals etc to stamp on! I think I'll follow the Cricut Challenge you entered this week as hopefully that will give me some more inspiration!
