BBTB2 BIRD CAGE/BIRD HOUSE CHALLENGE AND END OF MONTH BLOGHOP!
It's ages since I blogged, I've been really out of sorts for the last few weeks, but hopefully I'm on the mend now!
So, as it's Monday it's time for another challenge at BBTB2! Our very own super talented Sandi chose the cut for us this week but alas has been having problems with her computer so the wonderful Carole has taken the helm this week!
Anyway on to the challenge! The cut is either the birdcage from Straight From The Nest or the birdhouse from Stretch Your Imagination, but if you don't have these cartidges please use any that have a birdcage/birdhouse on.
I went with the birdcage from Straight From The Nest and my card is quite simple. I cut the birdcage at 3 1/2" in black and let me tell you I am amazed at how beautifully my Cricut cut this, parts of the cage are only about 1mm wide ! I created the base card with aperture using Design Studio and Plantin School which is 5 1/2" square with a 4" square aperture. Papers used are DCWV and MME. I added 2 little metal bird beads on the perch and hung the cage in the aperture using 3 jump rings.Then I added some roses around opposite corners. The tiny black swirls between the roses are the waste from the cage! Finally I added a rub on sentiment.
Now for the fun bit! It's end of month bloghop so make sure you visit my DT sisters blogs and you may even win some candy on the way!
We hope you will join us at BBTB2 in our challenge this week, we love seeing your creations
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week!
