Cricut challenge shocker

A few months ago on the Cricut MB a woman was challenging others to use (go figure!) their cartridges. No design studio, no gypsy, and not just look at your carts, but break them out. She'd list one per week and everyone would post their creations. Well, a woman posted a dragonfly card and envie similar to this (not CASE, but I wanted to give her credit for the idea) and I fell off my chair because I could not believe THAT creation came out of THAT cartridge. I mean, I'd had that cart since the beginning of having a cricut. No way, could it produce anything like it. So, when a birthday of a special girl came around, I decided it was time to challenge myself.

Sure enough, people, this came from DOODLECHARMS!!!! There is a card feature with a base layer and a foundation/envie button (the last button on the overlay). The round dragonfly on the front of the envie is the charm with the foundation layer. I put stickles on the wings and antenna, bella bauble in the head, and liquid glass for the body.

It's Berry Sorbet with coordinating paper and ribbon.

So, pull out that cart and get to work!!

This is a lovely project Kristin. I think you have nailed the colours and embellishments to the tee.
