BBTB2 PINEAPPLE CHALLENGE!










































Hello There!
It's Monday and challenge time over at BBTB2 and this week our very talented Karen chose the cut for us, the Pineapple from Wall Decor and More cartridge.
My card is 6x6" and the backing paper is from the Stripes collection which is a download from Pink Petticoat. I cut my pineapple at 7" 3 times twice in green polka dot paper (Bo Bunny)and once in yellow. I cut the green leaves from one of the green cuts and offset behind my base cut and cut the pineapple from the yellow, embossed it with a Quickutz folder which I cannot find the name of now (I used the debossed side) and mounted on the front of my base cut. I aded black gems to my pineapple some turquoise ribbon and a button, oh and not forgetting the orange straw which I cut down from a real straw! This has been pop dotted on to the card for a little dimension. The word Party is cut from Straight from the Nest cart at 2 1/2" and is part of the Hen Party cut. I cut the shadow in black card (American Crafts) and the base in pink card (C'ordinations) three times and again pop dotted on to the card. The colours are much more vibrant in real life, but as I am usually a night crafter my photos are not as great as they could be!!
I hope you will join in our challenge this week, we love seeing your creations and you can use any pineapple from any of the many carts if you don't have Wall Decor.
Have a wonderful week everyone and thanks for popping by!

There were sure a lot of us in the mood for a little tropical drink this week. Too bad we all can't get together in the same spot and drink up together. Love your card and the straw.
