Harvest Blessings Layout

Good morning everyone,
Hope you are ready for a FANTABULOUS WEEK!
To kick things off, here is my project for this week’s Cricut Challenge. Our assignment was to use the color green and to use a circle shape in our project.
So here is my take Smile


I made this one page layout using the following supplies:

Cricut Cartridge: 
Thanksgiving. 
I cut the Harvest, Blessings and holly-leafy type flourishes from this cartridge. I actually cut the titles and the leaves (top layer) of the flourish in regular white cardstock. I then covered them with Olive Vine Glimmer Mist to give them that goldish-green tint. The pictures just don’t do that justice. It is really pretty in person…..Especially because I don’t really care for that color green….but it worked :-) So the green is obvious. As far as the circle shape…Well there are a lot of little circles…in the lace borders, the paisley printed paper and then the jewels. Not obvious, but none the less there :-)

These are just a couple of shots trying to show the gold to green shimmer that the glimmer mist gave these die cuts. Super pretty. Please be sure to head over and enter the challenge. As always, there are great prizes up for each challenge! Plus you will want to see what other fantabulous creations the DT came up with….sure to inspire your bug juices.

Have a Wonderfully Crafty Day!
