Hip To Be Square!

Hi Everyone!   I am so glad you are able to join me for another FCCB Challenge! The challenge today is to create a project that is a square...and for an extra added twist use green and gold!  I had a ton of ideas running through my head-- all through grade school, jr. high and high school my school colors were green and gold so I that was the first option I considered-- but after much cutting and a little frustration--NOTHING was working for me!  



So I decided to create a square card in honor of Saint Patrick's Day!  I really love how this card turned out and it was super easy to put together.  I used mainly solid color paper from Stampin' Up and the gold glittery piece of paper is from We R Memory Keepers--from a  "Foil Glitter Flock" adhesive rub on kit-- NO clue if these are still available or not.  I picked mine up ages ago for a $1.00 at a discount store here in town.  But I love the glitter--I've never tried the other pieces in the kit :) 

Recipe:
Cricut: Designer's Calendar
Paper: SU! and gold glitter WeRMemoryKeepers
Other Stuff: gold ink pad to use around the edges
Gold cording from SU--long retired I'm sure
