My Pink Stamper Design Team Challenge!!!

Okay, yes, I decided to do it!  New to the blogging community and all!  Robyn from My Pink Stamper is having a challenge for two spots on her design team.

She stated:
You must have a blog--CHECK
Not be on a conflict of interest design team--CHECK, never been on one!
Project must be new and just for this challenge--CHECK
Make a project with PINK, GREEN, BROWN and a color of your choice...

I ended up using BLUE and PURPLE for my other color choices...hope that's okay...

Here we go!
 I used my new Green Cricut Expression to cut the turtle, from Four Legged Friends, at 2" with green, purple, and brown DCWV cardstock and Colorbok pink glitter paper.  
I used the Classic Font cartridge to cut Shake Your Shell at 1".  
I did something a little crazy for a beginner, I guess, to cut the phrase.  I put a 3.5" X 5.5" piece of blue paper on my mat and used CDS to weld each letter together within the frame of the paper (I know you can put a rectangle on the screen but I didn't bother finding a rectangle on a cartridge to use...I probably should have...) 
This is what I got on my first cut!  Yay, me!
Then I put the blue paper onto my brown card that's 4" X 6" and had to glue all the little inside cuts into the right spots.  It was really fun to do, but you can't really see the technique from the picture.
I think it would be really fun to be on a Design Team.  I think it would put my creativity to the test!
Go ahead...I know you want to...Shake Your Shell!!!
