BBTB2 BIRTHDAY AND PEARLS CHALLENGE












Good morning

This week's BBTB2 challenge is hosted by one of our lovely new DT members Stephanie who chose Birthday and Pearls as a theme for us.

Well, I was late posting my card as I thought I would try my Viva Decor Pearl Pen and as fab as it is  I needed to leave it overnight to dry!

My card is approx 9"x4"and I used centura pearl snow white card throughout.This card is lovely as it looks like it has a fine gold mist laid down on it, not that you can tell from my terrible attempts at photographing it ! I used Cricut cart Cake Basics for my Happy Birthday cut at 3"and cut one base and 2 shadows. I then used the Viva Decor pearl pen to cover the base cut with different sized pearls. What I love about this pen is that the pearls don't peak like meringues, they give a great pearl shape although I probably need a lot more practise! I adhered the base cut when dry to the shadow cut then pop dotted on to a second shadow which was then pop dotted again on to my card for extra dimension. Finally I used a martha Stewart flower punch for some little blossoms which decorated as well as covered up my little mistakes!  I added little turquoise gemstones to the flower centres to finish off.

Please pop over to BBTB2 and take a look at the gorgeous creations from the rest of the DT this week and as always we would love you to join in with the challenge and as it's a theme any cartridge can be used!

Thanks so much for popping in today, have a lovely week everyone!
