Exploring Cricut-Luck O' The Irish

It's challenge time at Exploring Cricut. The challenge is to create any card, layout or project using a shamrock and your Cricut, of course! 

I created this card using a couple cartridges and really love this color green because it looks so springy. Our mountains of snow have finally melted after some rain this weekend and it smells like spring. I hope we don't get anymore snow; but never say never in the midwest!

After running the medallion through the Cuttlebug I used Diamond Stickles on the Swiss Dots to give a little shimmer.

Enjoy your Monday and hope you decide to play along with us. Check out my DT sisters and brother for some more fun ideas!

Thanks for stopping by!

That color green does feel like spring!! I love the medallion shape you backed your shamrock with-I haven't tried using that one yet on Elegant Edges.

I am home with the kiddos for spring break from school, so we are looking forward to a lazy rainy day today in our PJs! (And maybe some crafty time for me!) Hope you have a lovely rainy day too :)
