A Child Year's Girl with Clover

Welcome! If you are looking for the Flaunt It Fridays Birthday Bash Blog Hop, please click here or scroll on down after this post.

This week at Jitterbuggin' the challenge is "It's Not Easy Being Green". Sherri asked us to follow the sketch, use green and add a Cricut cut. I love this sketch that Sherri designed for this week's challenge. I was able to play this evening after work and I am sharing my card with you. I have been so busy that this is my first St. Patrick's Day card this year. Yay me! I am ahead for next year!!


The card is 5 inch square using a yellow textured cardstock from Colorbok. I cut the pretty clover-patterned paper at 4 3/4 inches. For the corners, I cut two 1 1/4" squares from the green and two 1 1/2" squares from the lavender and then each square was cut diagonally. Fiskars Scalloped paper edgers was used on the lavender pieces. For my Cricut cut, I used A Child's Year cartridge and cut the little girl with the clover at 2 1/2 inches. She is on page 31. Also the shadow feature at the same size was cut from the lavendar paper. I cut the girl again from the green paper and trimmed the clover off to be used in the little girl's hand. The green mat is cut at 3 1/4" and the yellow is 3 1/8". Cuttlebug Swiss Dots is used on the yellow mat. The little girl is pop-dotted on the mats. Corner pieces on the mats were cut using a EK punch. Lots of inking, white pearls for a little more accent, and the purple ribbon with gold threads complete the look!

Challenges:
Jitterbuggin' -- Follow sketch, use green, and a Cricut cut
My Sheri Crafts -- #48 St. Patrick's Day
Cooking with Cricut -- #21 Green scene--use 2 shades of green
Fantabulous Cricut - Square Card -Colors green and gold or bright yellow. My yellow paper may not be too bright, but I do have gold threads in the ribbon.

Maybe I can find another challenge or two to enter the card. Hope you enjoy!
