FCCB Challenge Me Monday!!!

Happy MONDAY!! And yes, it is a Happy Monday!!! Why, you ask? Because it's my first Monday on the Design Team for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog!!! YIPPEE!! The challenge put forth is called "Hip to be Square" and we were asked to create a square-shaped card using green and gold. Now, automatically, I thought of St. Patrick's Day...but then I nixed that one. I'd already created 2 projects for the Irish holiday, and I'm NOT EVEN IRISH!! LOL! I decided to go for a simple, yet elegant, 'thinking of you' card...here it is. I used 3 shades of green (the lightest shade actually looks ivory in these photos!!) on top of a brown patterned background, and simply added some gold accents in the form of stickles and silver brads that I made gold with gold glitter embossing powder. I hope you like it and maybe I've inspired you to head on over to FCCB and link up your own project for the challenge!!



Recipe:
Cricut Cartridge: Blackletter
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! and DCWV Green Tea Stack
Gold Stickles
Glaze Black Embossing Pen
Gold Glitter Embossing Powder

This is stunning! It looks so sharp! I especially like the gold glitter around the sentiment. It's such a pleasure to be working with you at FCCB!

Your card is by far my favorite from this week's design team. It is fantastic. I love the clean lines and your choice of color. I hadn't looked at it when I made mine but my submission is in the same vein as yours. I also had forgotten about this cut on Blackletter. In fact, I forgot there was anything on there other than the letters which I love.

Thank you.
