FCCB Challenge #202 - Pinch Me (Use Green)

Happy Monday!!! and welcome to another Monday challenge over at FCCB!

Challenge #202 Use the Color Green

This Weeks Sponsor
Be Wild and Free stamp set

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

My Project:
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! I hope you are all wearing GREEN today or at least have green on the brain because this week over at FCCB we want to see all of your projects featuring this fabulous color!  I decided to create a "patchwork" card using some fun green pattern papers from Hobby Lobby.  I used Kate's ABC's to cut the scallop squares at 1 1/4".  The shamrocks came from Celebrate with Flourish and I cut them out at 2".  My card base is 5x5 white cardstock.  I had a couple green buttons in my stash and added them for balance.  My stamp comes from a combination of Stampabilities and Studio G.  I hope that you will join us this week and be sure to get your GREEN on!!!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
