BBTB2 HERITAGE CURLY TREE AND END OF MONTH BLOGHOP!

















Hello Everyone
It's Monday and time for the BBTB2 challenge and it's also month end so it's bloghop time!
This week it 's my turn to host the challenge so I chose the beautiful curly tree cut from the Heritage cartridge. Don't worry if you don't have this cartridge you can use any tree from any cartridge for your project.
I decided to make a thank you card and all my cuts are done at 5 1/2" using ivory pearlescent card and gold mirricard. I welded the tree from Heritage cart offset to a silhouette circle from Geoge And Basic Shapes cart using Design Studio and also cut a silhouette circle on it's own (both in ivory) I cut a circle from George in gold Mirricard and finally I cut my card base in ivory using the circle bauble tag from Joys Of The Season cart and cut the top of the bauble off by hand which gave me a circular card. All layers have then been pop dotted as follows: the gold mirricard on to my base card followed by the welded silhouette and tree followed by the silhouette circle, by pop dotting each layer I got a nice reflection of my tree against the mirricard. I then added some little frosted glass leaf charms and a gold thank you peel off to finish.
The design team have produced the most beautiful tree projects for this weeks challenge so please be sure to visit BBTB 2 and take a look and we would love to see your take on the challenge too!
Don't forget to follow our bloghop too for a chance to win a little blog candy on the way. If you are following the hop you will have reached my blog from Maria's wonderful blog, just leave me a comment (and contact details)and you could win the little candy below and then hop on over to Penny's fabulous blog for your next stop!
I will draw a winner on Saturday 3rd September!










Thanks so much for visiting me today and have a great week!
