Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday challenge #67-Pool Time

Happy 4th of July!!!

Hope you all are spending the day with family and friends, perhaps a picnic, at a parade and of course enjoying the fireworks.

This weeks challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is Pool time. I ordered a few new cricut carts last week. Got them in the mail the end of last week so the All Sports cartridge had a great cut for this theme.

I think we all know someone who cannot resist jumping into the pool and splashing everyone else- right?

Here's how I did it....

Standard A2 card
Paper from my stash
Swim Dude/layers cut at 3.5" from All Sport, p.50
Wave/layers cut at 2.5" from CM Traveler Cartridge, p.60
Beach ball/layers cut at 1.25" from Life's a Beach
Embossed white card stock with retro circles cuttlebug folder
EK border punch
Sentiment CTMH Makin' Waves stamp set
Navy Brad on beach ball, red stickes, and chalking

I really like this card. The glittery beach ball on the wave looks really cool. The embossing and the punch you used look great too.
