Cricut 360 - Challenge #10 - Grandparents

Hello! It's Friday and time for another Cricut 360 Challenge! Make sure and head on over to see who the winner for the week and the top three picks are - it might be you!!!

Since it is September (already!), and Grandparents Day (September 11th) is just around the corner, the challenge this week is to make a card, layout, or project inspired by or in honor of our grandparents. Here is what I came up with:

I used the brand new Cricut Circle Exclusive cartridge - Sophie. The layers and flowers on this cartridge are gorgeous - and it has a doily feature that I am in LOVE with! I also used A Child's Year for the tag shape.

The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co.'s May 2011 KOTM.

I pop-dotted everything from the background, and did lots of inking on each piece.

Finished off with some doodling around the edges, and some ribbon threaded through the sentiment tag.

Thanks for visiting - now go link up your creations! I can't wait to see what you come up with this week!
