FCCB Challenge #103-Spring is in the Air!

 Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!

Happy Monday everyone and I hope you had a great weekend! I had a wonderful weekend spending  it with family. The baptism for baby Arya was beautiful and she was so good! She is such a little peanut and such a happy baby! Today, is also my wedding Anniversary. Wahoo... 29 years! I can't believe it's been that long. It really doesn't seem that long. I have honestly been blessed with an amazing man, that's for sure!!

Today is also Challenge Me Monday over at Fantabulous Cricut and we would love for you to come join in the challenge. Today's challenge is "Spring is in the Air" and we would like to see you use at least 3 flowers on your project.

I have made a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card. I used a Martha Stewart's lacy punch and ran it along the edges of the front of the card-both sides. I then cut a layer piece at 3 7/8 x 5 1/2 and rounded the edges.

I then cut a layer piece at 3 7/8 x 5 1/2 and rounded the edges and pop dotted sweet little Abby which is cut at 4 1/2 plus the layers from the Sesame Streets Season's cartridge. Isn't she just happy and full of life?  So cute! I added some fun flowers for the bouquet from the Flower Shoppe cartridge and they were cut at 2". I also added some perfect pearl mist to the flowers to give them a shimmery look.  It's hard to see in the picture but I really like that shimmery, pearl effect.

I had to add a big bow for her hair...I used some yummy crinkle ribbon from my friend Julie over at 3 Girl JAM. You should stop over and check out her ribbon. She has such fun colors and very reasonable:)  The sentiment is from My Creative Time ~Turn that frown upside down set which is a great set to have in your collection:)

Now,  pop on over to Fantabulous Cricut and see what the amazing Design Team has created for you:)  Be sure to come back and join in the challenge!!!

I am also entering this in the following challenge:
1.) Docerela Creations ~Pastel Colors
2.) Little Scrap Pieces ~"Make it Happy"

Thanks for stopping,
Sherrie K
