Another Balsa Wood Card

This is my second post today. Be sure to scroll down to see the layout I made for my design team project for My Creative Time.

I'm so excited! The Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is featuring me today! They wanted to share the card and video that I made using balsa wood with the Imagine (see that post here). They also asked me to make another card using that technique that would fit their "April Showers" challenge for this week: to create a project using an umbrella or hat image.

For my card, I printed an image from the Imagine More cartridge on the balsa wood, and then ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Papertrey Ink Button Card die. "Hey, chica!" is a sentiment I added from My Pink Stamper's Tweetie Hoo Puns set. My fun patterned background paper is also from the Imagine More cartridge.
