I made the card 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 square. I cut the window out of the base of the front of the card and the first layer of patterned paper. Then I framed the window with the negative part where I used the square nestie on solid black . I used the Cricut Sampler cartridge to cut the boat & fisherman. I adhered it to the inside of the card, where it would show through the window. The fish and water are the result of Googling for fish clip art. I printed and cut it out, adhered it to only the outside edges of the frame, so the card would still open easily. I forgot to take a picture of the inside, but I put Happy Birthday to the catch of the day, up high enough that it doesn't show through to the front part of card. It still looks a little empty, but I was afraid to add anything else, because I wanted the fish on the hook to be the vocal point. Thanks for letting me share, and again Happy Birthday, Gwyn. Don't forget to check back on Pat's blog this week to see what has already been entered and again Saturday night at 8:00 pm to see what the rest of the crowd has entered and to find out what the new challenge will be.

I made a pink and purple one. Their favorite colors. It is plain and simple but I liked the concept. I used the Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge for the egg and the yellow yolk that the little feet are popping out of was made using the Accent Essentials cartridge. Now I am off to make a little bunny like Pat's.

Robyn had made the cutest little vase possible for Pat's Saturday night challenge. And vases were on my mind. You can't tell from this picture, but the little vase is cut out and put on with pop dots. It stands out from the rubbed on flowers beneath it. I added a little curve in the paper to make it look real. I added several layers of paper and changed directions of some of the layers. I used two layers of embossed paper. I hand stitched little holes around the layer that holds the vase. I also added several layers inside, so it wouldn't be front heavy. Thanks for listening and looking today.

The base and the layers are all just basic card stock. I cut the little spirals with my Cricut. I placed the spirals on 4 little square layers of card stock then two more layers, Making 4 layers total. Then added the ribbon and sentiment. Thanks
