Fantabulous Cricut Ch. 100 - FCCB Color Challenge

Welcome To Glenda's Cards! Thank you for stopping by today!

Hope each of you had a great weekend! Time again for another fun challenge at Fantabulous Cricut! This week we are celebrating the 100th challenge! Wow! How exciting and Congratulations! Challenge 100 is Color Challenge - Use the 3 colors associated with FCCB - Green, Purple and Turquoise. How fitting is that!!
I am so excited to be participating in this 100th challenge and yet it is a bit sad for me because this is my last challenge as a design team member. I have had so much fun working with Robin, Amy Jo, and the talented designers for the past few months. I want to express my appreciation to Robin for allowing me 2 wonderful and fun terms at FCCB! Congratulations to the returning designers and to the new design team members!

Now to my card! I started with a 8 1/2" x 11" white cardstock and folded it in half to make a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" card. Going through my stash of paper, I came across this pretty crafting theme paper that I thought would work good for the challenge. All the solid papers were in my stash also.

Cricut Cartridges: Working in the Cricut Craft Room
Nate's ABC's - Page 69 - Scissors cut 1.75". Page 70 - Glue cut at 1.75".
Simply Charmed - Page 54 - Word feature for "Craft Day" cut at 1.569" w x 1.375" h.
Plantin Schoolbook - Letters and shadows cut .75".

Cuttlebug: Hearts folder for the white mat. I wanted to create more focus on the hearts in the designer paper and also my love for crafting!
Martha Stewart - Butterfly Pop-Up Edge Punch. Designer paper has such pretty butterflies and I had to cover most of them up! I used some of the punched out butterflies on the white mat.
Other supplies include inking, rhinestones, pop dots, and buttons with bows made of DMC Memory Thread.

Now it is your turn to play along with us at Fantabulous Cricut. Please visit the blog to see all the creative projects by the design team. I am sure you will be inspired to play along with our color challenge. Remember you must use Green, Purple, and Turquoise plus a Cricut cut on your project!

I want to thank my blogging friends for all the support and friendships made while I have been serving on the  design team! The motto on the FCCB blog states, "Share, Create, and Inspire". You may notice on the designer paper on my card the words inspire and create. I love that piece of paper! I hope the projects that I have created and shared with you have been inspiring! I know I had a Fantabulous time!!
Best wishes to all at FCCB!

Thank you for your comments! I enjoy reading each one!
