Cricut Cardz Challenge #43

This week Cricut Cardz Challenge Design Team #2 is showcasing their cards over at the CCC blog. For challenge #43, make a card for a new baby using any cartridges you'd like, and the colors green, orange, yellow and white ONLY.  Be sure to head on over to the blog to check out all of the great inspiration for this challenge from the DT!

For my card I wanted to make something clean and simple. I used only white, yellow and green on my card. I used Graphically Speaking to cut my card base, Mini Monograms for the rounded squares inside and out, and Wall Décor and More for the lovely little duck. I love the simple yet elegant cuts on the Wall Décor and More cartridge. I stamped the sentiment on the inside of the card rather than the outside. I'm very happy with the final product.
