So Lucky! BBTB2 Challenge

Hi my crafty friends!  Hope you had a fabulous weekend and are ready to start the new week with renewed energy.  Today is Monday and that means a new challenge over at BBTB2.  I am hosting this week's challenge and I chose for everyone to use a shamrock on their projects. You can use any shamrock from any Cricut cartridge.  So get those Cricut's humming everyone! For my project I made a banner.  I don't have any decorations for St. Patty's Day so I thought I might make a few.  I used Pretty Pennants, Blackletter for my "lucky" and A Child's Year for my shamrocks.  I used some stickles on my "lucky" as well as on my shamrocks.  I used some gems on the points of my pennants and some crystals on each corner.  For the center I used black liquid pearls.  I also used twine to tie my banner together.  If you are looking for some more inspiration go to BBTB2 and see what my design team sisters have for you, I promise you will find a lot of inspiration from them. While you are visiting leave them some blog love as well.  Have a wonderful week!

Brenda, this is fabulous. I love the pennant cut and the font. I bought Blackletter when I first bought my E and never used it. This is the only way I've seen it used that I like. Beautiful!

Brenda I love your banner and the Pretty Pennants cards. I need one of those at my house. Sorry I couldn't do the challenge this week being the Irish girl I am but I was in charge of Showcase today on my other DT. Thanks for bringing on the green for the challenge.
