'TWEET ' BIRTHDAY WISHES CUTTLEBUGSPOT
Well I've had an icky flu bug all week so apologies for not getting around to commenting on all your lovely creations will try and catch up this week still feeling icky but starting to feel more myself!
I am late posting my project this week as when I sent it to Nilda it seems to have got lost in cyberspace but it's got there now!
This week over at the Cuttlebugspot Nilda asked us to make a project using monochramatic colours ie different tones of one colour.
I made a card and a little box to hold some sweets.
The card is 6x6 and all the papers are from Pink Petticoat. I printed the papers pink first then overprinted with the pink patterned designs. I cut the little birdhouse and birdie with my QK revolution die 'bird' which I recently purchased from the Scrapping Cottage and layered on a mat using my new Nellie's die cuts ( these are like nesties and I got them at a Craft fair a couple of weeks ago and I love them!) the 'pink sun in the cornere is a Nellies also, you can see more at www.nellies-choice.com. I used pink Prima say it in pearls for embellishing and some hearts and pink gem from my stash. The sentiment is computer generated in pink (font Cheri) and everything pop dotted and inked.
The little birdbox was handcut using a template designed by Nichole Heady on behalf of Papertry ink But I improvised with the roof as I didn't have the nesties she used! All the embossing is done with CB Swiss Dots folder.
Hope you like my project this week, the rest of the DT have created the most beautiful projects, be sure to visit and we'd love you to join in!
Have a great week everyone!
