Exploring Cricut...Summer Memories

Hi Everyone,

I have a fun and simple card to share with you for this week's Exploring Cricut and More Challenge.  This weeks theme is "Here Comes Summer" and we were asked to incorporate blue and red.  When I think of summer, I remember my mom dressing me up with denim shorts or denim overalls and playing outside with my brothers - climbing trees, bike riding and eating ice-cream.  Oh, those were the days!

I started out with Whisper White card base, and red patterned paper from my stash.  I divided the top and bottom of the card with a strip of red ribbon and red taffeta ribbon, which I made into a bow.  The ovals were die-cut from more Whisper White and Blue card stock using the ovals spellbinders.  I used the Cricut Cartridge Freshly Picked, and cut out the denim pants at 3 inches.  The sentiment is from SU! Petite Pairs, and was stamped in Basic Black ink.  For the final touch, I added 2 red dots to the overalls.
Thanks for taking a peek,
