MBA Graduation Card – My Entry in the Cricut Circle Challenge

Although there is time left on the clock, this is likely my final entry in the Cricut Circle National Scrapbook Day Challenges that began last week.  It has been such a terrific experience; just what you would want in the Circle – inspiration, techniques, and enthusiasm.

This was a recipe challenge and required a bird, bug, or butterfly, three patterned papers, the color yellow, and hand or machine or faux stitching.

I made a graduation card for a friend who has just earned her MBA while working a very demanding full-time job.  Now that she has her weekends back, maybe she’ll try a crafty adventure or two.

I used the Happy Graduation seasonal cartridge for the owl and the seal (with ribbon), and Cricut Craft Room Basics for the tiny rolled flower alongside her cap.  I even sewed the layers of the card – got to remember to change out the needle before I sew again.


It’s been a terrific week – I added a new-to-me kitty to my furry family, was selected as a winner in the Cricut Circle card challenge to welcome the new Provo Craft CEO Ashish Arora, and I won a “prize” from Sizzix for my photo of my dog and my Sizzix Vagabond hooping it up in the Where in the World is Your Vagabond entry.

What a great week!  Hope yours was as well.
