Just Buggin' Challenge #18 - A Hydrangea Bouquet

**Please scroll down for today's Flutter By Wednesday Blog Hop!**

What do ya know, another post for today! While blog hopping this morning, I came across Just Buggin' which is a challenge blog to use your cricut. This week's challenge is to use "Shadow" or "Blackout". I couldn't pass this one up and since the deadline is tonight at midnight, I had to get a move on! I decided to do up a floral bouquet for my grandmother. For the last few month's, I've been trying my best to mail her one of my cards every couple of weeks as she's in a nursing home and she's come to really look fwd to them. She just turned 91 in Dec and is doing very well. She still gets around but it's just hard for her to be on her own now. She has vertigo, so she loses her balance alot and she also has angina. So, I decided to enter the challenge with a card for Grandma. I think she'll love it as it has a nice spring feel to it and she loves her flowers.

For my card I used one of my favourite cartridges "A Walk In My Garden"
  • SHADOW - hydrangea at 4", 3", 2" (black CS)
  • BLACKOUT - hydrangea at 4", 3", 2" (green CS)
  • SHIFT - hydrangea at 4", 3", 2" (pink, purple and blue CS)

I sprayed my bouquet with shimmer paint (mixed with alcohol) and then I tied my bouquet together with ribbon! If you'd like to enter this week's challenge, hop on over to Just Buggin' before midnight with your creation!
