Altered Over the Hill? card for the Cricut "Show us your Best" contest

As some of you must already know Cricut had a "Show us your Best" contest in which the winner gets 3 carts of their choice and their project will be featured in the next Cricut infomercial. So...I took the design of the card that I had the most fun making and coincidently the most carts used! In the original design I used 5 carts but I decided to make some changes to this version which I ended up adding another cart to the recipe! I used the CDS and there was one cut that I made that I had to change the cart 5 times!

Here's the recipe for this version:
Cricut carts: AE, Celebrations, Cuttin' Up, Doodlecharms, Doodletype and Opposites Attract (strangely enough I didn't use anything from Beyond B-days).
Stickles: Xmas Red
Blossoms: Making Memories Jumbo Daisy Spotlight
Various rhinestones and self-adhesive gems
Cuttlebug: D'Vine Embossing Folder
Ribbon: Offray Stripe Red-Bk and red ric-rac
CS: White, Black, Red, Brown, Metallic Papaya, Neutral Tan
DPs: DCWV The Glitter Stack

For the rest of the pictures that I did exactly the same for this project and also of the different inside of the card design, click here.
