Animal Print Monogram Cards

Hello,
These cards are for Bitten by the Bug 2's Any Cartridge Mongram Challenge.  For this challenge you are allowed to use any cartridge to make a monogram card.  I decided to use some fun animal print paper that I got from Michael's.  I also used black satin ribbon and jewels from my stash.  Enjoy the pictures :)

 To make my monogram I used Font 3 on the Cricut American Alphabet cartridge.  I loved the little flourishes that were added to these letters.  I really enjoy the colors since they are so bright and fun.  The solid color paper is the back of the animal print paper so there was no need to worry about finding colors that matched.
 On these individual pictures you can see the embossing I did with my Cuttlebug.  I used 2 folders from the Animal Prints Set.  I used the Cheetah and Zebra print folders.

 The zebra texture wasn't as pronounced as I would have liked but I still love the way it turned out.

Recipe:
Black Card Base: A2-4.25 x 5.5"
Animal Print Layer: 4 x 5.25"
Solid Color Layer: 3 x 4"
Letter from Cricut American Alphabet Font 3: 4"
Letter Embossed with Animal Prints Cuttlebug Folders
Black Satin Ribbon & Jewels from Stash

Have a Magical Day!!
