Cricut Dress Up

Hi everyone! I am back with a silly sort of project for you today :-) The Cricut Circle Magazine challenge this month was to create a costume for our little vinyl Cricut guys using Cricut cuts.
At first I was totally discouraged by the contest and couldn't think of a single thing to do. Then I took a look at all of the other amazing entries and decided I should at least give it a try.
I decided to go with a pirate theme and used the Buccaneer cartridge with my Imagine machine.
I cut the purple shirt from the boy image on the cartridge and couldn't just leave his head there (he looks angry) so I made a "mask" for the green Cricut guy.
The map was cut at 10.5", the boy was cut at 5" , the hat at 2.5" and the 3D treasure chest was cut at 6".
I kinda feel like I cheated on this challenge, since I used the Imagine and everything was already in layers, and I was finished so quickly, but it is a Cricut machine, right?
Hope you like it!
