Lucky Duck - Cricut Cardz Challenge #63

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU to all my new followers and all of you who have congratulated me on my recent engagement. Your comments always make me smile =0)  It has been a while since I've participated in a challenge and I certainly have missed it!  I know I should be finishing up the invitations I'm working on but I needed to take a little break.  I decided to play along this week over at  The challenge this week was to make a St. Patrick's Day card or project, however, no shamrocks were allowed in the design.  It was a little challenging since pretty much everyone associates the two. So I really had to give this one some thought and this is what I came up with.  I had wanted to use this little duck for sometime now and was planning to do so for either a spring or Easter project.  Then I thought hmmm...what about a lucky duck for St. Patrick's Day!  I just love ducks they are so cute!!  I decided to go with that and here are the specifics:

Cartridges Used:
Gypsy Wanderings: Card Base @ 4.90"(welded two tags together) & Layer @ 4.40"
Just Because Cards: Duck & layers @ 6.25"
Disney -  Mickey Font: Lucky Duck @ 0.65"
Paper Dolls Dressup: Top Hat @ 2.60"
3 Birds on Parade: Horseshoe @ 5.00"

Supplies used:
Solid cardstock: Recollections
Patterned Paper: My stash
Rhinestones: Michaels Dollar Section
Ribbon: Michaels
Gold Gel Pen

Thanks again for stopping by =0)
