Challenge #3

This is my first challenge with Celebrate the Occasion as a DT member.  The challenge was to make a project using only the colors green, white and one other of your choice. I didn't realize how hard that can be but here goes.
Being a Circle member, I just received the new exclusive cart  "Cricut Everyday", and I had to use it.  This new cart has alot of scrap sayings on it and this particular one seemed perfect. I started out with this green pail that I found at Michael's in the $1 bin.  I used  blk and white vinyl, which I get from Expressions Vinyl,  and cut the saying at 2.5 in. The scissor border was made, using the same cart, by cutting a  scissor  at .92 in. and welding enough together to go around the pail. I then added bling with my I- rock.

The next thing was the flowers, I used Forever Young for these cuts.  I found  scraps of green patterned paper in my stash and cut them at different sizes ( 2.0,2.25,2.50in.).  I inked the edges, curled the petals ,and added black buttons for the center. I then found some white crafting sticks to attach them too.
I  added green and white ribbons to the pail handle and filled the pail with white crinkled paper.I then arranged the flowers in the pail and  added the cricut tools to the mix.   I  was thinking this would make a fun gift for a new crafter.
