Tri-Dancers - The challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio this week is to do anything but a card. This challenge had me stumped for a while. Finally it hit me that a pillow box would be fun and easy with my Cricut! I cut it using the fit to page feature and the Easter cartridge. My DP is from my stash and I'm sorry, but it was from a pad that I no longer have the cover from.

I cut me flower also using my Cricut and did the wet, wad, and dry techinique. A fun way to make a flower. I used a MS punch and my white Viva Decor Pearl pen. I tied my ribbon with my bow easy.
My image is 3 Graces by Michelle Perkett. I colored the images with Copic's and used my Sukara pen to add just a hint of sparkle.
You can join us at Michelle Perkett Studio in this fun challenge here. You must use a Michelle Perkett image to play, once you see Michelle's images they will be become some of your favorite images to work with. I love how girly they are, but the team did a great job of making guy cards with them for our Father's day challenge a while back.
