FCCB Challenge #192- Use a Sentiment Blog Hop

I am sooooo very excited to join the Design Team for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog!!!

It's a new year and to start it off we have an amazing blog hop planned for you!

 
The challenge this week is to use a sentiment, and as always, use a Cricut cut. 

Our sponsor this week is Scrappy-Moms Stamps. Link up your project at FCCB and you will have a chance to win an awesome stamp set!!

For my project this week I used the Wall Décor and More Cricut Cartridge to create a birthday card for my little girl who will be 7 at the end of the month!

I started with Distress Paints on my craft mat, which I spritzed with water and pressed watercolour paper into.  After drying my background I went over it with Distress Inks to create a beautifully blended background.  This is my favourite way to make a background - so easy, but looks so detailed!

 
I cut the sentiment, shadow, and two layers of the castle with the Wall Décor and More cartridge and slightly offset the castle to create a bit of a shadow. Of course, I had to use glittery cardstock for a princess card!
