BBTB2 CHALLENGE FROM MY KITCHEN
Well this week is my first challenge as a DT member for BITTEN BY THE BUG2. To say I was nervous is an understatement! Dee Dee from the team chose a cut from From My Kitchen cart and I wouldn't have even known this cut existed! It's the tabs card cut on the ice cream cut. It's a pretty little card with some flowers cut out.
I decided to use the tab as a tag card for a bunch of flowers. Backing paper is silver and duck egg blue from Hunky Dory. I first cut the tabs card at 7 1/2"in black and white polka dot and just used the flower cut outs for the large flowers. I also cut it at 1 1/2" in the same paper for a tag and backed with some lemon striped paper and rub on sentiment and added some little pearls and a gem. I made the ribbon flowers using a wonderful video tutorial by Kirsty Wiseman see her blog here. The tutoruial is for crepe paper flowers and the white flower is done with crepe but I decided to try some wired pink and green ribbon for the other two flowers and added pearl centres Finally a pink bow to finish off!
You should see the fabulous projects the rest of the team have created! Hope you'll pop over to BBTB2 and we'd love you to join in the challenge and don't forget to check out the Magnolia contest which is still going on!
Thanks so much for visiting and have a great week
