Hello my blog buddies,  I hope that all is well in your lives.  We've just gone through a big life event.  Moving.  Uggg.  I have joined the 'I hate moving' club.   My previous moves have not been this hard, or maybe I have gotten old enough that I don't remember them.  It has been just over 2 weeks and I still can't find my stamp cleaners!  my life. 
I did find time to join a couple challenges.  One from the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog ~ Challenge 236.  I took the liberty to turn it to the side and changed up the dimensions a bit.  The challenge is also to use a Cricut cut, so the papers were cut using George and Basics shapes.  The other challenge is from the November PaperCraft Connections.  Their challenge was to use gold in your card.  Well ta da!  Gold overload!  right!?

I started the challenge with some gorgeous hand made paper from India.  I had tried selling the stack during our moving sale, but thankfully no one wanted to purchase it because I have fell in love with it.  I used some turquoise paper for the base, then I added some beautiful gold glitter paper from Michael's.  The ribbon is also from Michael's ~ from last year's Christmas stock.  The cute perfume bottle is from a Graphic 45 set.  Also from Michael's.  Gosh, I guess I like shopping at Michael's!
I colored the bottle with a gold sharpie,a turquoise pencil with an aqua brush, then added  glossy accents on the bottle.  Pretty :-)
Update:  My card was picked as the top Design Team choice!!  yippie!
