Feathers for sis

I've been itching to use this Saturated Canary image since it was released.  I had to wait until my sister's birthday to use it.  My thanks to Sketch Saturday for the card design.
I've been toying with the idea of buying a Grand Calibur for a while.  I see all you challenge bloggers using the die cuts time and time again.  I have a Cricut though and there comes a time when you just have to make the best of what you've got.  I had one of the first Sizzix die cutting machines, and then I bought the Big Shot.  I have masses of dies, all unused because I bought the Cricut.  So I've talked myself out of it and instead I purchased the electronic version of Ornamental Iron 2 on instant download to my Cricut Craftroom.  I cut out the swirls and I'm pleased with them.  Not as nice as the Spellbinder dies, but I do seem to have card envy (actually, I think that might be craft envy full stop!)

 Let's see how we do in the following challenges:
