BAUBLE CARD FOR BBTB CONTEST


Good afternoon everyone

This is my attempt at a bauble card for the BBTB (Bitten By The Bug) contest hosted by Regina.

We had to use the circle cut from George, Plantin School or Accent Essentials cart on our card as an ornament! I used Plantin 2 circles @ 5"welded together to make the card base then another circle cut @ 5" for layering on top. Gold mirricard for the top of the bauble which is a stocking top from Christmas Cheer. I embossed the bauble with swirls cuttlebug embossing folder leaving a blank through the centre. I had the gold wired balls in my stash which I bought last year with the idea of doing a bauble card and just never got around to doing it! I twisted 3 strands together and adhered with glossy accents across the centre (Glossy accents will glue anything and everything I love it!) I broke of individual gold balls from the wires and adhered them on the swirls and also to the white net tied around the top of the bauble. The decorated bauble then adhered to the card at an angle. Greeting is a gold peeloff on white then matted on to gold.

There are some stunning entries so go have a peek http://regina-bittenbythebug.blogspot.com/

I've never entered a contest or a challenge before so be gentle with me!
