Cricut 360 Challenge Invitation

This is our first design team challenge for Cricut 360. I hope you all join us for some fun challenges, great projects and prizes! Yeah who doesn't like prizes! Our first challenge is to make an invitation and use the cuttlebug if possible. It can be an invitation to anything so mine is going to be for a pool party. Since I live in the sunny state of Florida there is lots of hot sunny pool time weather. We have one in our back yard so it gets used alot especially lately as it is generally about 97 degrees (with humidity I would say over 100!)

I'm cutting images on my new cricut expression 2 and from "pack your bags" cartridge. This is one of my favorite cartridges. I love to travel, I love tropical items so this cartridge is in my top 5.

Card size: 5 1/2" x 6"
Used 1/2" corner chomper on bottom
Paper used is Recollections Kraft paper
Pattern Paper is Fancy Pants 6x6 beach babe paper stack
Teal ribbon from Michaels
Glossy accents on the goggles
Glossy accents in the circles of the pool to add some glistening like water

Here are the images from "Pack your bags" I used and sizes:
Boy with goggles (page 40): 3"
Sun (page 44): 2.5"
Inked used is Colorbox- colors were "blue lagoon" and "Tangerine"
Typed the "You're Invited" and "To A Pool party" on my printer
Embossing folder & Cuttlebug- on the pool
Cuttlebug folder- spots & dots

Now go over to cricut360 blog for a chance to win this cute paper pack!

Love the pool invite:) So cute! Thanks for coming by my blog. You said you wanted to see more pictures of my desk. I am doing a post tomorrow with all the pictures. Be sure to stop by. Allan has been my Uncle Steve's best friend for over 40 years. He had to drive over 2 hours back to my house to deliver my desk. I still can't believe that I have this desk in my craft room. My friends are like wow how much did that cost you! It didn't cost me anything. Well, we did take Allan to lunch. It was the least we could do:)
