My 1st Cricut card!

One of my dearest friend's daughter is having a birthday pretty soon and Sara recently told me that Karis really likes the Disney Fairy, Silvermist and I just so happened to have the Disney Fairies Cricut cartridge so I thought I'd attempt to make Silvermist to put on Karis' birthday card! OY...what a headache it turned out to be. I think as I learn more and more it will get easier and faster but it took me a good 1.5 hours to make this card. Trying to figure out what size to cut, how exactly the layering works, switching colors for every body part, etc. It ended up being pretty cute but I can say, I probably won't attempt another fairy for quite awhile! LOL

Here's the end product:

It doesn't look much like a birthday card but I really wanted to put Silvermist on the front so I added this to the inside:

The glitter turned out kinda sloppy...still figuring it all out but hopefully since she's only turning 5, she won't hardly even notice! :)
