BBTB2 VACATION CHALLENGE



inside of the card











Hi
This week over at BBTB2  our wonderful Carole chose the theme Vacation for our challenge.

When I was a chuld I loved nothing better  than spending our summer holidays by the seaside so thst was the idea for my card this week.

My card is about 8" wide and 4" tall and is actually a 'corner' cut from Straight From the Nest cricut cartridge and I just welded the base corner to the shift corner to make my card base. I cut another corner in orange and also a shift corner (which is just the plain shape hope that makes sense!) in acetate and adhered that on to my card followed by the corner, for the front I then cut one more front in yellow and just trimmed out the sun to add to the front of the card. The word days is cut from Just Because Cards cartridge using some stripey card from my stash. For the inside of my card I cur another shift corner to cover using some blue/white polkadot paper and tore some yellow card to depict the sand. The three children are from A Child's Year cartridge which seems to be my favourite go to cartridge at the moment! To finish off I added a few shell beads to the front of the card.

Pop over to BBTB2 and see the fantastic vacation projects the rest of the DT have created this week and join us in this lovely challenge, we would love to see your creations!

Thanks as always for taking the time to visit and hope you all have a great week.
