Throwback Thursday Challenge with Emma

Happy Friday! I made this card today for Emma's Throwback Thursday challenge #8. I love that she has these challenges because it gets me to use my Cricut Cartridges.  I used my Gypsy to design it. I don't have a Peachy Keen stamp to fit the puppy face so I inked a nose and stamped it then I inked eyes and stamped them from the set below. I used chalk to color him and a white and black pen for detail. The Happy Birthday is kinda hard to cut out but I used Megan's cutting guide from Above Rubies Studio. It is a helpful tool. You have until tomorrow to enter Emma's challenge and she has a really great prize.  

Other Challenges:
Pile it on - banners
Stamp Simply #149 - Two's Company (two of something) two words, two flower
Totally Stampalicious - For My Best Friend
Crafty Creations: Happy or Sweet (HBD Sentiment)
KL Stampin' N' Scrappin': Ribbon
Let's Capture Our Memories: Use Your Stash (Celebration Cartridge)
Practical Scrappers: 1+ Year Old Stash (Designer Paper)

Here is what I used:
*Cricut Cartridge Celebrations
*Stamp: Peachy Keen Stamps Critter faces, I stamped in two parts
*Paper: SU, Almost Amethyst, Lavender Lace, DS Paper Pizazz
*Ink: SU new Concord Crush
*Acc: SU Pastels, Kaiser Rhinestones,Crystal Stickers rhinestones, Dimensionals, Zig two way glue,  Sponge, Stardust Gelly Roll Clear Pen

Do you see my new card holder? I was in an antique store looking for one and the sweet lady said she saw one at St Vinnie's.  So I headed right over. I only paid $3.50 for it. I am sure if it was at an antique store it would have cost a lot more. I have seen other people use them and have wanted one for about a year now. Boy was I happy when I found it still sitting right were shes told me it was. Then  I looked around and found the big stack of envelopes. I love treasure hunts when I find something useful.

I have another card to show you later today but I need to go to the grocery store before it starts raining again. So be sure to stop back.

Thanks for stopping,
