Cooking with Cricut Swirls and Twirls C-18

Well I will say I do not have too many cartridges with swirls and twirls so this "Cooking with Cricut Challenge" was a bit challenging for me, and let me know it's time to go shopping. I love Easter so I thought I would somehow incorporate that into my design. I grabbed my Easter cartridge and went to town. I also used my Disney Tinkerbell cartridge for the beautiful swirly and twirly butterfly. So, this is what I came up with. I hope you all enjoy.

As you can tell I love glitter, lol! I used DCWV glitter paper for the butterfly pieces, Colorbok paper for the basket base, AC glitter paper for the handle and a little Martha Stewart glitter for the border around the butterfly. After putting the butterfly all together I realized the underneath was white and a bit plain so I added some green DCWV sticker paper underneath, however when I cut it out I did shadow instead of the actual cut of the image so I had a bit of hang over, lol, so I threw some Martha glitter on the sticky part that hung over and gave it yet another color. I tried to take the picture in the sunlight to get the pretty "bling" of it it didn't come out all the way but I hope you can see it a little. Thanks, in advance to all of my followers, viewers and commenters. Now head on over to and see what everyone else has come up with!
