~New Design Team Announcement~

I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday and that Santa left you all some crafty love in your stockings! We are very excited to announce our new design team members.  To celebrate we are having a blog crawl, which is FCCB's version of a blog hop.
If you get  lost along the way, the lineup is listed below. Once you've done the crawl, make a project using a sentiment and add it below.

Here is my project:

I used the Suburbia cartridge for my lady and the sentiment. The silhouette is cut at 3 1/4" and the sentiment was cut at 3/4".  I'm trying to break out of my comfort zone this year and use colors and things that I wouldn't normally pick. The background behind the silhouette is a green color that is not one of my favorites, but it went quite nicely with the purple. After I embossed that piece, I decided to use the debossed side for a more retro look. I cut 2 strips of the border with a MS punch and layered and offset them. The pearls are K & Co. 

I will keep this short because I know there are many great stops on this crawl so go and enjoy! Your next stop is Michelle Just a Nutter Papercrafter.  If you get lost along the way you can always go to Fantabulous Cricut and find the main crawl list (like the one above). Enjoy and welcome to the new DT members.
