Celebrate The Occasion –Challenge #8

Hello and welcome to my new followers...thank you for joining me on my journey!


I hope everyone is having a CRAFTASTIC week and ready to Celebrate The Occasion! This week we are creating a Birthday project with 1 requirement…you have to use a flower. For more inspiration head on over and check out projects from the super talented Design Team members!

Remember, to join in the fun...the sky’s the limit…as to the type of project or tools required! We just want you to enjoy crafting!

There are also prizes, a weekly winner is selected and then entered into the monthly drawing...

For my project this week I really did something outside of my norm. My card was made: (a) without my Cricut…what’s wrong with me (b) used felt; rarely ever use felt and (c) muted colors. It’s definitely outside my norm.

Hope you like...would love your feedback.


Card:  5x5
Cuttlebug: Butterflies
Punches:  EK Success- Butterfly Chain and Photo Labels & We R Memory Keepers- Corner Chomper Scallop
Embellishments:  felt, rhinestones, eyelets, ribbon
