BBTB2 CAKE CHALLENGE AND END OF MONTH BLOGHOP!
Well I've not been here for a couple of weeks, my laptop died on me and have just had it back but it cost me as I had to have a new hard drive! Luckily I had backed up though !
So on to today's BBTB2 challenge which has been set by our lovely uber talented Carole! Carole asked us to use the cake on p99 from the Celebrations cartridge, this was one of my early Cricut carts and what a great cart and do you know I was flicking through the handbook and there are no blank spaces not like a lot of the newer carts!
For my card I used a 6x6" card and papers are downloads from Pink Petticoat. The cake is cut at 4", I cut 2 shadows in black cardstock, blackout in pink, base in yellow/white polka dot and base shift in pink. I layered up all the pieces on to one shadow piece, added a Happy Birthday glitter peel off and lime green gems. Next I added three real birthday candles at the back of the cake and using 3mm thick black pop dots made a sandwich with the second shadow cut (hope that makes sense lol the candles are sandwiched between the two shadow cuts) I then pop dotted again on to my card. I think I might enclose a little note when I send this card " Candles for decoration only. Do not light!!" He he you never know better to be safe!
It's end of month too so that means a bloghop! This month my candy is a little wooden house, (picture below) I say little it stands about 9" tall and is all ready for you to alter and decorate. I just had to get one for myself too!
You should have reached me from our wonderfully talented Krista's blog, just leave me a quick comment to let me know you were here to be entered into my candy draw before zooming on over to see what fabulous creation Theresa has to show you! Make sure you leave me a way to contact you and I will make the draw on Saturday June 4th.
Don't forget we would love you to join in our cake challenge at BBTB2 and if you don't have the Celebrations cart there are lots of cakes to choose from on other carts that you can use!
Thanks so much for popping by today!
