Card using the Cricut Imagine

Can you believe it?  I actually created something! LOL :)  Last Friday, my Cricut Imagine machine was delivered.  To be honest, I debated for a loooong while as to whether or not to buy the Imagine.  But, I found a great price on Ebay for one, and I decided to take the plunge!  And let me tell you... I am sooo glad I did!!  What an awesome, awesome machine!  It's so user-friendly and the colors are much more vibrant than I thought they would be.  

So, today after playing, I have a card that I'd like to share with you.   It's not my typical style (a bit messier than I'm used to) but I'm really happy with the way it turned out. The machine is capable of doing layering, but I decided this time to just keep things nice and simple.  And instead of using my Cuttlebug, I dusted off my old, seldom used paper crimper to add some texture to my card.

Both the owl and the turquoise patterned paper are from the Imagine More cartridge (that comes with the machine).  To add a little extra character to my owl, I used some googly eyes and some stickles to make his belly sparkle.  Sentiment is from My Pink Stamper's Tweetie Hoo Puns which can be found at these online retailers.

Such a cute little owl with all that glitter on his belly! I just thought I'd stop by and say Hi and congratulations. I'm one of the new girls on the MPS team. I'm really looking forward to working with you!

Have a good day!
