FCCB Challenge #168 Cute as a Bug

Monday !!
It's Monday !!

Welcome to my post for this weeks FCCB Challenge
Challenge #168 is all about BUGS !!
Butterflies are not strictly bugs I guess but it was too hot and sunny and beautiful to create a dirty old bug card lol !!

As ever our challenge runs from Monday at 0800 until 1900 on Sunday evening, please pop over and join us and then make a card/project using at least one Cricut cut, you could win our top 5 Blinkie to display on your side bar and/or the weekly prize 

I used some beautiful Prima papers purchased from THE CRAFT DEN and cut my butterfly x2 with the Artiste cartridge
I was going to use Ashlyn's alphabet but the cartridge has malfunctioned since I added it to Cricut Craft Room and refuses to cut the top part of every image laying it on the "No cut edging bit !!" No idea how that happens, any offers girls?????
I embossed some of the elements on one of the papers and then made some paper flowers also cut from Artiste
I very rarely use glitter but this card cried out for some
I edged every piece with Worn Lipstick Distress ink and added the foil embellishment a present in the Christmas Cricut topper exchange I joined last year - Thanks Jenny !!
