St. Patrick's Day

When you think of St. Patrick's Day, the image that comes to mind is a shamrock. Well the challenge this week at Cricut Cardz Challenge is to make a card using any Cricut cartridge but NO SHAMROCKS!

I put my creative cap on and came up with this card. I started with the hand cut from the Designers' Calendar Cricut cartridge and added a lime green bow to serve as a reminder to everyone to wear green. I then used my Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge to cut a banner out of black cardstock with the words "wear GREEN on 17" which I then mounted on lime green background paper. Green bling was added to give a feminine touch to the wrist.

I noticed that most of my other team mates at CCC used the Irish leprechan in their projucts but I tried to do something a little different. I hope you get some inspiration from my efforts not follow the typical rainbow to the pot of gold.
