Cricut 360 Challenge #3 Parents Day

I love my parents just like I'm sure (I hope) all you do. I decided to do a little card with one of my FAV carts "Car Decals" most people either love it or hate this cartridge and I for one LOVE it!! Here is the card and I will have all the goodies down below to tell you the sizes. I love Cosmo cricket papers so that is what I used on a couple spots. I used my new Cricut Expression 2 because I also used a preloaded cart "Cricut Essentials". I really am starting to use each and everyone of the three machines I have. I wasn't sure I would use my imagine much but I really am loving it. Especially some of the new carts they are coming out with are excellent and I have to tell you the printing a whole pattern page I really am loving that and that was the one thing I didn't really think I would utilize! Now I am buying quite a few of the pattern carts. Have you seen vintage papers or Berries and Cream...those are on my LONG wish list!!
 The background floral paper is Cosmo Cricket "Early Bird Brunch" 7.25 x 6" (So this isn't the typical sized card!)

The graph paper looking piece the is under the figures is Cosmo Cricket "Girl Friday"
***PS You all really should check out "Scenic Route" store online I got 50 sheets of double sided variety of Cosmo Cricket paper for like $7.99 plus shipping! I bought two of them because I love there paper and it was such a good buy. Lots of great mix of papers!!
The frame is from the cart "Cricut Essentials" cut at 7.25" in black paper (page 24)
The layer for the frame is cut with Kraft paper
The Label is from "Cricut Essentials" cut at 1.5" (page 26)
The Mom is from "Car Decals"  (page 35) cut at 3"
The Dad is from "Car Decals" (page 48) cut at 3"
I inked the edges of the floral paper with Colorbox ink called Prussian Blue

I just found out I am moving and this is a sudden decision and happening so fast so my mind is in a million places. Its a 1000 mile move too so its alot of work to get this organized so at some point I won't have access to the internet or my craft supplies so I am working feverishly to get some projects done ahead of time. I will probably go nuts if I am without the internet even two days so lets keep our fingers crossed it won't be more than that or I will have MORE gray hairs!! Thanks again everyone for stopping by and make sure to go to cricut360 Blog to join in and win a great paper pack from Echo Park Dots & Stripes!
