My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday Challenge!

Welcome to another Throwback Thursday Challenge over at My Creative Time!

 Here are the details for the challenge:
***Use ANY "RETIRED" Cricut cartridge of YOUR choice! You can see a list of "Retired" cartridges HERE! IF you do NOT own a retired cartridge, just use any OLDER cart that you own!

For the winner of this Throwback Thursday Challenge, Emma is giving away her newest release, her 9th Edition stamp set! The entire set!

I decided to go with the Serenade Cricut Cartridge. This one has so many cute cuts on it! And since my kids were watching Gnomeo and Juliet a few days back...I couldn't resist these adorable little flamingos for an anniversary card! :)


Once Upon a Princess Cricut Cartridge (page 46) I used my Gypsy to weld the two images together for my card base. Then made a couple smaller layers. The card is just barely under 5x7.
Stampin' Up Cardstock: Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream, Kraft, Ripe Avocado, New Leaf, Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst
Serenade Cricut Cartridge: Flamingos cut at 4" (For the green Flamingo, I flipped it with my Gypsy.)
Floral Screen Cuttlebug folder
My Creative Time "My One and Only" stamp set
Stampin' up Chocolate Chip Ink

This card is the CUTEST! Now I'm really wishing I had the Serenade cartridge - those flamingoes are adorable! I love the colors you used, and they really stand out against your embossed background. Beautiful card shape too! Thanks for playing along with My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday Challenge!

Thanks everyone! :) I didn't even realize how many super cute cuts are on the Serenade cart until I chose it for this challenge! I guess I haven't even used it!
