BBTB2 PIE CHALLENGE




























Hello
Today is BBTB2 Monday and this week our sweet and lovely Krista chose cut for us to work with. Krista loves to bake so she chose the Pie cut from Paper Doll Dress Up. Of course if you don't have this cart you can use a pie from any cart.
My card is 6x6" and the backing papers are the apple collection from the Autumn set of Pink Petticoat (download) printed in black and white. I used both the positive and the negative for the background. I then added some red and white gingham ribbon which I tied at the sides of my card. My apple pie is cut at 10" (it comes out at about 4" across irl). I cut it 3 times, once in little harlequinn card (another Pink Pettticoat download printed in a pistaccio green) for the base and twice on cream card. I cut the 2 pie tops away from their bases and  used the tops to complete the piecrust for my apple pie. The two top layers have been pop dotted for some dimension and I inked around the edge of the top layer of piecrust with yellow ink and a smidge of brown. To finish off I added german glitter glass for a sugar coated top! and some teeny tiny red and white polka dot buttons. Finally I needed a sentiment and I was stuck!! It took me an age then all of a sudden it came to me lol!! the word Happiest had 'pie' in the middle! I printed the sentiment on my computer in red and green highlighting pie in black and layered them with pop dots on mats of green and red. Font is cheri.
Now go feast your eyes on the delicious pie's my DT sisters over at BBTB2 have created for you this week, they all look so scrumptious! and lets see your pies yum yum!
Thanks so much for popping in today

Julie-What a fantastic card. I was wondering about that cute black and white background paper. Glad you said where it came from and that's it's available as a download. I'm on a strict paper storage budget living in our RV now. There's not a lot of room for paper storage and I have to be careful of weight limits since we are traveling. I'd completely forgotten about digital backgrounds. Thanks for nudging me in that direction.
