CC July: Let's Eat & Cricut 360 Challenge #1: Invitation

I chose to do a BBQ invitation.  We are currently having a flagstone patio and cover put in.  I can't wait until it's finished and I can throw a BBQ.  Hopefully soon I'll be using this invite :-) 

CC requires 2 Cricut cuts and gingham or check print in our project.  While the Cricut 360 just called for an invitation of some kind.  Here's what I came up with.  I'm using a cart I got at the TX Stampede and it's the first time I've played with it!

Base is Kraft 6x4 3/4"
The Paper Studio- the Basics Stack - red gingham paper
DCWV - Stack 7 - journal paper
DCWV - Metallic matstack- barbed wire frame

Old West Cricut cart - base shape- Icon @6", flourish barbed wire frame border @5" (I also cut the corners again to layer on top for dimension), "BBQ" letters @ 3/4" (I cut these 3 times using Kraft paper and glued them together for a thicker letter)

Friskers Wedding stamp set, brown ink for edges, brown Zig pen for doodles, pop dots for dimension.

Thanks for looking!  Good luck to all in both challenges!
