Celebrate the Occasion Design Team: Challenge #3

Hey, everyone!  It's Tuesday again, so it's time for another challenge at Celebrate the Occasion.  This week's challenge is to make a project for any occasion, as long as you use the colors green, white, and one optional color.  I had a lot of fun with this project...here it is:



I chose to make a birthday card because it seems I never have enough of those.  This card is 5.75" square.  The iguana is from the Lettering Delights Love Pets SVG Set (which I cut using Make-the-Cut), and the hat is from the Birthday Bash Cartridge.  I printed the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock and embossed the top portion with my Cuttlebug and the Tiny Bubbles embossing folder.  I added a strip of patterned paper, some stitching lines, some ribbon, and some brads, and that was it!  I hope you like my card!

Now, head on over to Celebrate the Occasion to check out the other Design Team Members' projects and to enter the challenge yourself!  Each week's winner is entered into a drawing to win an awesome monthly prize!  This month's prize is a Cricut Cartridge: Rock Princess.  I hope you join in the fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  If you like what you see, I'd love it if you'd leave a comment and become a follower.  :o)
