Over at BBTB2 this week the wonderfully talented Beth from the DT chose the banner from Country Life cartridge . I don't have this cart so I chose the banner cut from Give A Hoot which has these lovely birds holding up a small banner and thought they would make a nice Christmas card. My card is very simple as I just used the cut as is, shadow ,base and layer. The card is DL in size (8 1/2x 3 1/2") and the base card is gold mirri card. I cut a layer of red glitter swirl card from DCWV Christmas Glitter card and pop dotted on to the base. My cuts are made at 2 1/2" as I like the 'off the card' look shadow in black, base in gold mirri and the birds are cut in white glitter card and pop dotted . I added pearls to the top of the banner,some black gems for eyes, white glitter letters and finally dangled some tiny bells from jump rings at the bottom of each of the banners (this was the harderst part of this card as I had to make the tiniest of holes to thread!).
As you know it's month end so some of my DT sisters are doing a blog hop so make sure to pop over to BBTB2 and follow the hop for some prizes along the way and feast your eyes on the gorgeous projects my DT sisters have created this week and as always we love to see your take on the challenge too!
