Exploring Cricut and More Crafter's Choice Challenge

Happy Monday everyone! Today there is a new challenge at:

I am so happy to be a part of such a wonderful design team 
at the Exploring Cricut and More blog. I just love all the Cricut 
and SVG projects made by these wonderfully talented ladies! 
Today's challenge is "Crafter's Choice" using at least 2 diecuts! I made
this card using my very first SVG cut! This adorable penguin was a freebie
at Designs On Cloud 9. I just think he is so darned cute!!! I have had
the SCAL 2 software forever but was intimidated by it. I decided to
give it a try and it worked like a charm! I am in love with so many of 
these adorable SVG's I see on everyone's blogs and now I can partake
in the fun, yippee!

I made this card a couple weeks ago. I used the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge
 for this scalloped circle card. I cut it at 5.25". I decided to make it an easel card.
 The circle layers are cut at 5.0" and 4.75". The banner was cut at .75" 
and stamped using the Craftin' Desert Diva's stamps. The top note layers were 
cut at 2.0" and 1.75".

I used some enamel brads to decorate the banner and glittery cardstock 
for the glasses, beak, and feet. I used some silvery mirror card stock 
for the lenses. I am so excited about this card and my first SVG cut! I am 
already working on other projects and can't wait to share them with you!
Thanks for visiting and don't forget to check out all the projects
at Exploring Cricut and More. Hope you can join in on the challenge!
