Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge - Make a Game Plan

Over on the Circle Blog there is a Weekly Challenge as well as a Monthly Challenge.
I have never participated until today, so wish me luck! I need to re-read the rules to see if we can post more than one project..

Weekly Challenge #27: Make a Game Plan Challenge!

The Challenge: Create your own sketch (card/layout) and then make a project with it. You will need to upload both images this week, the sketch and the project. Your sketch doesn’t need to be anything fancy, it can be something you scribbled down on a piece of scratch paper that you took a picture of, but we should be able to see your sketch apparent in your project design.

So I recently purchase or traded for I can not remember the Better Together Cartridge..
It is sooo cute! When I saw this image, I honestly immediately thought of myself and my BFF Nicole..
Nicole evacuated from Japan voluntarily as the base she is (the base I just left after 7 years of living there and moved to Florida) is only 60 miles from where one of the Nuclear Reactors is leaking radiation.. So now my BFF is in California and I really want to see her, but you know how things go.. So anyways as soon as I saw this image I thought of us and knew i had to make a card or something for her.. I made a sketch (well several but had to file them in the circular file) and voila here you go..

All cuts and papers are from the Better Together Cartridge..
Cardstock used: White Daisy from CTMH
Sentiment from {ippity} stamp set Because of You
Heat embossed with Baby Pink embossing powder from CTMH
Ribbon is from: Offray

Cricut Imagine Cuts:
2 Circles at 5.5 to from the front and back of the card, both of these were printed solid blue
1 circle cut at 5 in a patterned paper
BFF Girls (thats what Im calling them) cut at 4.5 twice and the layers were also cut
I did not use all of the layers just the purse and hair (not the bracelets)
High Heel Shoe cut at 2.8

The top of the circle is adhered together to make the card using Tombow Adhesive

Thanks for looking!

    Nadia, crafting is very addicting isn't it and when you see something cute you want to go out and buy whatever made it.. I know.. that;s why I own SOOOO many cartridges..
