Weekly Challenge #2: THINK PINK! "Fight Like A Girl"

Emily K. #2583

Created this for the weekly cricut circle blog challenge. This week is Think Pink. We were to use at least three of the following in our projects: Pink, Ruffles, Scallops, Flourishes, Glitter, and Jewels. I used flourishes corners, glitter paper along with glitter glue, ruffled ribbon for the skirt, pink of course and jewels. I had such a great time making this. It really brings out the girl-attitude for those fighting and bringing awareness to breast cancer. The girl from the Rock Princess cart was the perfect fit for my idea but I had to figure out boxing gloves for her. So I search for boxing gloves on my cricut carts and found santa's gloves which are similar. I used bread ties to create the look of the laced up gloves.
Enjoy! Thanks for taking a look!

Cricut Circle Ooh, la la French Manor Weekly Contest

It really makes a great little light in the window as you can see. I love that I can switch the lantern to what side I desire. It is nice to change things up a bit every so often.

The lantern lit with tea lights. This is a great idea for Halloween too! With any of the Halloween cartridges you could make really amazing lanterns!

For the weekly contest I've created a lantern.

French Manor cartridge: Bird Tile, Stamp, Screen, Tile, and Eiffel Tower.

George Cartridge: Squares 4.3 by 5.3

Heritage Cartridge: Accent 9 (or I like to call them photo corners) on the eiffel tower side
