This is my first card using a Cricut rather than the focal being stamping.
I made this card for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge, FBW, Flourishes, and Our Daily Bread Designs--DT member Dawn's challenge called Jacksonbelle! (SSHhhh! I really made this for my Mom and Dad. My Mom is a member, also, so I didn't want to start with that part, and draw her attention. Don't tell!)
Please, let me know what you think. I really am curious. Thanks so much!

Traci-your caterpillar looks so joyful out enjoying his spring day amongst the butterflies and flowers. Your layering is pretty along with the faux stitching. Fabulous job with the sketch this week. Glad you chose the more challenging one. Thanks for playing along with us this week at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. We are so appreciative of you gracing us with this fabulous creation.

How fun to use your cricut! Thanks for playing along with my flutter by challenge!
Housework won't kill you, but why take a chance?
When in doubt-add pink, sparkle and a butterfly! http://dannisdreamscrafts.blogspot.com/

Traci, your card is like a walk in the garden. The flowers, the beautiful butterfly and that cute little crawling critter. Lovely papers too. Thanks for joining the MMSC this week. Nice take on the sketch too.
