Card with fun foam

Goodness, I'm so far behind here! Several wonderful bloggers have given me blog awards that I've yet to post and pass on. I'm behind on challenges I want to do, and have some fun cards I need to post. Yikes! I better get busy.
So, anyhow, this is a card for Cricut Card Fairies and is for a lover of all things yellow. I saw some cards where fun foam was used with the cuttlebug dies and had to try it. The cuttlebug dies and the nestabilities cut this stuff beautifully! Wouldn't cut in my cricut, and stamping on it didn't work either (ummm, guess all that experimenting is why I'm behind here. But aren't ya glad I saved YOU all that time?). But it is fun in the cuttlebug and I didn't even have to change or adjust my "sandwich". I used the Core'dinations white wash cardstock (don't know where you can get it, I bought it at the stamp show), ran it through the cuttlebug and sanded the embossing. Then I distressed the edges but good--works well with this paper and looks great. Added some orangy buttons just to break up the yellow a little and used craft glue to attach the fun foam sentiment. Oh, I also tried the foam in my punches but it's too thick to fit in, so don't waste your time. Rats, I thought that would be cool. Well, I'll just have to go buy more dies to continue the fun with my fun foam. Thanks for taking a peek!
