Cricut Choice Challenge

Welcome all to another fantastic challenge at Exploring Cricut and More!  This week's challenge is to create a card, layout, or other papercraft using 1 cardstock and 1 patterned paper.  For this challenge I created a card that can be used for many different seasons/events, for mine I used Easter.
This is a really simple card to make because the Cricut does all the work.  Using my Gypsy I took 2 squares from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge, rotated them 90 degrees and then welded them together.  Then I cut 1" squares to fill in the welded squares.  The 2 larger green pieces were embossed with the swiss dots and the 3 smaller squares were embossed using the paisley folder.

Cricut Cuts:
George and Basic Shapes:  small squares 1"; welded squares 4.02"

Cardstock:  CTMH; Juniper, Cotton Candy, and White Daisy
Pattern Paper:  CTMH; Lolly Doddle
Ink:  CTMH; Cotton Candy
