April Showers Challenge

Hey everyone!  It's time for a new challenge over at Bitten by the Bug 2!  This week our theme is April Showers.  You can create a card, layout, or other project with a "shower" theme such as rain shower, baby shower, wedding shower, etc.  Just make sure you use a Cricut cut.
For the challenge, I decided to make a shaped card using the bottle cut from Baby Steps.  

This card came together very quickly even with my 2 year old hanging around. 

 The bottle is cut at 5 inches.  Using the Cricut Craft Room, I welded two bottle cuts together.  I then cut a second bottle cut in the pink polka dot cardstock followed by the other cuts.  
I have really grown to love the Cricut Craftroom.  I still have my Gypsy, but I like being able to use the colors to help make some of the paper decisions easier.
