Hints and Tips
Don't be afraid of combining challenges when designing your card.  The Cricut cartridges work really well with stamped images.  So with this card design I was able to enter the Fantabulous Cricut challenge and House Mouse and Friends Challenge.

This card was entered into the following challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge: Challenge Me Monday #120 Sunny Days.
Make It Monday: Challenge #98 Anything Goes.
House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge: Challenge #124 Summer Holidays.
