Cricut 360 Challenge #1

Hello and Come Join Us,
Today is the day we at Cricut 360 are having our first challenge! YAY!
The challenge is to make an invitation of any kind with any Cricut cartridge. The PRIZE this week will be a 6x6 paper pad from Basic Grey - Life of the Party and the winner will be picked using random.org
With summer here, there are many parties and its a perfect time to make an invitation.
So get thinking and join us over at Cricut 360.
Here is my invitation card for inspiration:

I used only one cricut cartridge....its my favorite...george! I love george because it has basic shapes and you can make anything you want with basic shapes! It took me less than an hour to make this bright summer card. The beach ball is a 2 inch round circle with 2 inch moon shapes for the colors of the ball and a 3/4 inch small circle for the center, the bucket is a 3 inch square, the rim of the bucket is a 4 inch rectangle cut in half- long ways, the stars are 1.5 and 1 inch, the bucket handle is a 4 inch silhouette circle, the sand is rectangles x 2 and free hand cut waves, and the crab is 2 inch oval circle for the body and 1.5 inch oval for the claws with some free hand curves, I added moving eyes and another small moon for the mouth. There is also a sun on george, but I added a foam sun for a different texture. Pretty easy! My kind of scrapping!
So come on over and share your creations over at Cricut 360! Challenge #1 and get more inspiration from our fabulous DT!
Thanks for stopping by!
