Cricut Ten Pin Bowling card

I have a friends birthday coming up next week and he loves ten pin bowling so I have put this creation together using the pin from the Nifty Fifties cartridge and cut 6 (yes should really be 10!) and then cut the ball off all but one (as the ball is part of the image). I cut a strip of card for the lane, cut is with angled end, added stamped texture and drew the arrows on by hand (which don't look so good). I used 3 dimensional stickies for the front pins and added glossy accents to the ball while leaving three finger holes on the ball before the glossy accent dries. Quite pleased with this creation as a first attempt from the picture in my mind...

CRICUT Sweet Treats - YUMMY I want to lick my card!

Here are some more of tonights creations, these made me very hungry and I was so tempted to lick the glossy accent as it makes the chocolate look so real, I have never felt like I wanted to eat my cards before! Yummy!
