Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge #1: OOH, LA LA! FRENCH MANOR!

On the brand new Cricut Circle Blog they are starting Weekly and Monthly challenges! This weeks challenge was to make something, anything, with the French Manor Cartridge. We had to use at least 2 cuts and add either rhinestones or pearls. This is what I came up with!

I ended up using 3 cuts from French Manor to create this little wall hanging. The Eiffel Tower is cut at 5.5". I backed the open part with mirror paper and used my i-rock to add the rhinestones. Then I cut the word "Paris" at 1.5" and cut the postage stamp at 7.5"(I think). Then I added the eyelets and yarn and I'm so pleased with how this came out! I'm going to hang it in my daughter's bedroom. She loves Fancy Nancy and this feels like a very Fancy Nancy project to me!

Here's another view of it on the wall. It was really hard to capture this one in a photo with out natural light, that's why the top pic was taken on the porch, LOL! Hope you enjoy my project! And if you are looking for my BLOG CANDY click HERE! Thanks for stopping by!
