Aqua is the Color of the Day

I made a couple of cards for some challenges today and they are both aqua! I guess I'm just in the mood to use aqua?
The first card is for the BBTB challenge. This weeks challenge is to use the gift from the Pooh and friends cartridge. I used my Cricut Design Studio to weld two gifts together to make a gift card holder.

I used lots of Stickles on this for some extra special sparkle. The inside is simple, I just cut four slots to slide a gift card into (some luck person is going to get my Kroger Plus card!! he he, I crack myself up)
This next vision in blue is a multi-tasker. I made it for the Card Sketch Challenge over at From C to Shining C. Eileen hosted the challenge today, if you'd like to see the sketch and take a peek at her version just click her name (it will take you to her blog).
I'm so excited that the NEW Cuttlebug embossing folders came in today!! I used the Pop Culture embossing border on this one (the diamonds across the top) They are already listed in my store so go get you some!
Don't you just love those little dangling pom poms? I've been dying to use them they are Fancy Pants. The flower is a Prima and I used a water color dew drop for the center. The papers (except the vellum) are all DCWV. It's kinda hard to tell but the background is from the Glitter Stack. The sentiment is an American Crafts rub-on and it leave this card open to all sorts of giving possibilities.
