Creative Construction with Blueprints - Lucky Me!

Hi, and welcome to the February Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge. The MFT design team's task is two-fold: 1) follow one of the Die-namics Blueprints sketches exactly and 2) do a little free-styling by mixing and matching elements from any of the specified Blueprints sets. This month's sets include Blueprints 2, 16, 17 and 19.
I really like the contrast of the gold layers on my first card - a smooth fishtail from Blueprints 19 contrasted with the embossed woodgrain of the Blueprints 17 strip.

The flower die from Blueprints 19 makes for the perfect shamrock.

I double cut the 'shamrock' for more dimension.
Freestyle with Blueprints 16, 17 & 19.

My second card features an exact sketch card from Blueprints 19 minus the button.
You can find all of the sketches HERE.

I stayed with the St. Patrick's Day theme on this one as well.
The sentiment is from Document It - Bingo.

The shamrock stem was made from the negative cut of the Blueprints 16 slit die.
I just ran it between my fingernails to give it a bit of a 'bend'.

Inspired to pull out your Blueprints and do some mixing and matching, or whip up a quick card using one of the Blueprints sketches? I sure hope so! Complete details and more inspiration can be found at the MFT Blog along with direct links to all designers playing along.

REally nice cards. Love how you used the flower to make a shamrock.
