A Charming Blingey Challenge!

In my search for some inspiration this week I thought I'd participate in a couple of challenges:

Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #47 - Think Bling
The Cuttlebug Spot - Oh So Charming

This was a really fun challenge for me, first of all because this is a great sketch (as usual) but also because I was able to try a new technique.  This is the first time that I have used Polyshrink (Shrinky Dinks) in my Cricut.  It was pretty easy!  I just used a regular blade, and I used the "Multi-Cut" feature set on 2 - although I'm not sure that was even necessary.  I used Sharpies to color the bunny and then pulled out my heat embosser.  Of coarse it didn't take long before my children were in there with me making requests!  It's actually a great project for tweens - they can make earrings, charms for necklaces and bracelets.  But that will be a topic for another post...
Cricut Cartridge:  Create a Critter
Stamps:  My Pink Stamper - Even More Punny-licious
Paper:  Doodlebug Design, AC Cardstock
Embossing:  Quickutz Flowers
Embellishments:  Stickles, Offray (ribbon), Polyshrink, Sharpies
