Twisted Tuesday Challenge - Flying by to Say Hi

This is my first time participating in the Twisted Tuesday Challenge.
I found this blog challenge through a group I am in on Facebook:
This is a great resource for finding fun challenges all in one spot.
The challenge was to include something that flies in your project with a twist of using at least 3 different embellishments.
I created an A2 size card 5.5 x 4.25
The embossed layer was cut at 5.25 x 4.
The Hot Air Balloon and clouds were cut from my Cricut.
Cricut Cuts:
Close to my Heart Artiste Cartridge
Hot Air Balloon: Feature Button Accent 1 & Accent 1 <Shift> - Button 40, cut at 3.75
Clouds: Feature Button Accent 2 - Button 40, cut at 1.0
My embellishments were:
Twine - The Twinery Honeydew
Dry Embossing - Cuttlebug Swiss Dots
Stickles - Star Dust
Brads - Joann Brand
Stamp Sentiment - My Creative Time's Teeny Tag Greetings (which comes with the teeny tag die)
The paper is from a 6x6 paper pad - Three Bugs in a Rug...Ellie
I love creating cards with these paper pads since the papers/colors all corrdinate so well.

Cropped Event Challenge #5

Our last challenge for the Cropped Event hosted by Megan Elizabeth at Above Rubies Studios was to create something with only using paper.
In my Mystery Box I got this super cute monster paper by Fancy Pants Designs called Monster Mash.
I knew this paper would work perfectly with my Mini Monsters Cricut Cartridge.
This cartridge is an oldie but a goodie...I just love pulling this one out every Halloween!
Cricut Cuts from Mini Monsters:
Monster: button 11 using Feature Layer 1, Feature Layer 2, Feature Layer 2 <Shift> and cut at 3.75.
Sentiment: button 48, Phrase Feature <Shift>, cut at 1.25.
It was really hard not to use other embelishments, especially on my monster who I wanted to give googly eyes. :)  This was a really fun challenge and such a fun event to attend.
I hope Megan does this again next year!

Cropped Mystery Box Challenge - Challenge 3

Here is my entry for Challenge 3 that I am participating in for Megan Elizabeth's Cropped Mystery Box Challenge.
The challenge was to use Alpha letters as Subway Art.
I used the Alpha letters that came in my Mystery Box...since they were red I went with a Christmas card.  This is fun to get some Christmas cards done early.
I also used the Authentique "Curiosity" paper also provided in my Mystery Box.

Cropped - Challenge 1

I am so excited to be participating in the Cropped Mystery Box Challenge Event hosted by Megan Elizabeth at Above Ruby Studios.  There is going to be a ton of inspiration and I can't wait to see what everyone creates with these challenges.
The first challenge was to use a similar style/technique that Megan used in her My 123 Stamp DVD.
I learned a lot of fun stamping tips from this DVD and used several techniques that I learned on my card.  Using these new techniques and stamps I didn't use my Cricut...Gasp!  No worries I'm sure I'll be getting some use from my Cricut during the challenges I will be participating in throughout this weekend.
I am getting so excited to craft my weekend away!
