BBTB2 FASHION CHALLENGE









































Hi
It's BBTB2 Monday challenge today and one of our newsest DT members Rebekah has chosen a lovely challenge for us this week. Rebekah chose Fashion as a theme so plenty of choice from  all the Cricut cartridges out there!

I made a card from the Art Deco but ended up making two as I couldn't make up my mind on a black dress or white!

My card base is 6x6" which I had to cut down by a quarter of an inch at the bottom as the frame is just short of a square.  Both the frame and the lady are from the Art Deco cartridge, frame cut at 3 1/2"and lady cut at 4 1/2". I cut both the ladies and all her layers  in black and in white in order to get the 2 ladies and just gave one a black dress and one a white. The shadows are cut in silver mirri for the lady in white and gold mirri for my lady in black. I added super glittery paper behind the frame in red and turquoise and matching gems to each card.

I bought this cart on a whim as it was on offer but now I've opened it and had a good look there are some fabulous cuts on it, so glad I bought it now!

Pop over to BBTB2 and take a look at the wonderful Fashion projects the rest of the DT have created this week and please join in we'd love to see your take on this week's challenge!

Thanks for visiting and have a great week
