The Kraft Journal - Cute Critters and Exploring Cricut


I created this card for two challenges.  The first is the Kraft Journal - it's all about "Cute Critters" this week.  The second is a brand new paper craft challenge I happened to stumble upon called Exploring Cricut.

My card:

My card begins with a kraft card base, followed by red and kraft gingham patterned cardstock.  I think it gives the card a "western feel" don't you think?  I used one of my favorite cartridges, Create a Critter.  The horse was cut at 2.5 inches.  I used 3 shades of brown cardstock.  I just love the scarf around his neck!  The star was cut at 1 inch.    

I think I will give this card to my nephew for his birthday.  I hope he likes it!

I'm also sharing my card over at Word Art Wednesday.

Thanks for stopping by,
