BBTB2 GARDEN CHALLENGE








Hi
Today's BBTB2 challenge is once again hosted by our very talented DT sister Julia who has chosen the theme of Garden. I am loving these themed challenges as they give you so much scope and are actually making me explore my cartridges more!

 I decided to go with flowers and a clean and simple card, well I actually made three of them as this is the style of card I like to send!

My card base is 6"x4" and I used a gorgeous silhouette flower cut from Lyrical Letters. On the cart this flower is framed by a thin square frame so I hid contour with Design Studio and added and welded a wider frame and elongated the bottom so it would cut in one piece and I could add ribbon and a sentiment to it. I cut enough to make three of these cards, two black and one white and mounted them on to white or black card. I added some black and white stripey ribbon and used black and white rub ons for my sentiments. Finally I added gems in pink,lime and turquoise to finish off. The longest part of making this card was adding 3d foam behind the cut as they are delicate and fine but I think the dimension it gives the cards is worth it!

Please pop over to BBTB2 and see the gorgeous projects the DT have created, they are much more elaborate than mine! We would love you to join in too and you can use any cut from any cartridge as long as it can be found in the garden which gives you oodles of choice!

Thanks so much for visiting today

Have a fabulous week everyone and Happy Memorial Day to all my US blogging friends!
