FCCB Challenge #76 : Back to School

If you are looking for the September Pumpkin Spice Blog Hop click here.

The challenge today over at Fantabulous Cricut is Back to School : use your ABC's (Letters) or 123's (numbers) on your project. How cute is this challenge!

I used a tag shape from the Graphically Speaking Cricut cartridge and welded it together with my Gypsy. That is the shape of the card.

I cut the alphabet border from Graphically Speaking too. I cut it to fit the tag shape card on my Gypsy. Even though it cut an intricate shape at a small size, my Cricut cut it really well. That's cause I used really good quality paper found at Shop Pumpkin Spice.

Cricut Cartridges : Graphically Speaking and Doodlecharms
Paper : Jillibean Soup Watermelon Gazpacho 6x6 Paper Pad, plain red/orange cardstock from stash
Twine : MME Lime Twist : Fly a Kit "Spring" twine
Black chalk ink
Tim Holtz distresser
