Lucky Me!

Hello friends.  Welcome to this week's Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge.  With St. Patrick's Day just around the corner my adorable Design Team sister, Laurie, selected the theme of Lucky for this week.  Laurie challenged us to create a project that used the word Lucky or a Cricut cut image that represents Lucky.  I chose these great images from CTMH's Flower Market cartridge.

I used lots of layered cuts on my card - the circle clover cut, topped with individual clover cuts in a different color of green, the sprigs of clover in the bottles, again with mixed green leaves, and finally the clover leaves on the corners of the card.

The "antique" milk bottles and the LUCKY ME cuts were also from the Flower Market cartridge.

I apologize that my photo seems a bit out of focus.  I actually photographed the card a second time, on a different day and time, and it still looked blurry.... and dark.  I decided that the issue might be with the small print on some of the papers I used.  

I have to say that the rest of the Design Team did a MUCH better job on this challenge that I did.  Please do go by Bitten By The Bug 2 and view the fabulous projects the team created.  You will not be disappointed.
