to my little scraphut and welcome to our monthly 

our challenge this week is the wheelbarrow from the Walk in my Garden cartridge. 
You will find this image on page #107 and it is image #26 on the overlay.

square card
here is my cute wheelbarrow. i never used this cut and/or feature before. the feature is the "card" one but all you get is the front of the card. at least, that is what i got.  i made a base for it.

i hid the flowers centers with the gypsy hide contour because being so small i was just going to rip the thin paper i used. i added the tiny rhinestones instead. i can still tell they are flowers, :).
i messed up at the end while stamping hello. i decided to use embossing powder to hide it but, i couldn't set the powder right. you see? i already had the transparency attached on the window. it was warping on me...:(
as you can see i was not having a good day, lol
btw, the hello stamp is from my pink stamper and you can purchase the whole set HERE.
it is called spectacular sayings.
i got myself a pair of martha stewart fringe scissors ;Dand i used them today for first time. i made the grass where the little punched birdie stands still. loved using this scissors.

this tree is from hoot n' holler, image #11 on the overlay. i cut this tree at three inches but it comes out a bit taller because of the branches. the pretty butterflies are from another paper punch. i like to have paper punches with small images because they are easier than trying to cut them w/the cricut sometimes and, i can use tiny scraps of paper too. :D
if you take a closer look to the tree trunk you will see i stamped for a more realistic look.

 and you can see i curled the leaves too.

this is my base for the front card. it is another 5"x5"piece of white cardstock which i scored at 1/2 inch and glued it to the front.

this is how it looks when opened. the back is the one that bends, not the front.

here is the completed card.
  i want  to mention that the transparency used on the window is actually a clear plastic from the dollar stamps package ;p.

hope you like my card...this one is a first for me as i mentioned before.

i have a small giveaway and i will use to choose for me.

  12. Well you can't tell you were having a bad day my friend, lol! Love the card and you know I always love the colors you use! I always have problems with my papers tearing when I use thinner papers even with less pressure and slower cutting, I think my E is just used to the thicker cardstock, lol, she's very picky, just like her Mama, lol!
