It's time for our BBTB2 challenge and it's my pleasure to host this week!

With Summer on the way  Wedding season is just around the corner  so I asked my DT sisiters to create a wedding or anniversary card using any Cricut cartridge and wait til you see their stunning creations!

I went with a very monochrome look in black and white for my card using 2 cartridges,  Life is a Party for the card and frame and Wedding Solutions for the bride and groom. The shaped card base is cut at 5 1/2"and the layers of which I cut 3  (Life is a Party) . For one of my layers I welded the wedding couple  (Wedding Solutions) to the inside of the heart. I used some flocked black and white damask paper which I adherd to the card base then each of my layers have been pop dotted for dimension. The first layer has glitter white tuille ruffled and adhered behind the heart and also the third layer which has a layer of tuille adhered behind the heart, then the middle layer with the couple has been 'sandwiched' in between these two layers. The top layer has been embossed with a 6x6 embossing folder ( Die'sire Embossalicious Lattice) I love this size folder! Finally the lattice embossing has been blinged up with little silver gems and congratulations is a rub on.

Please pop on over to BBTB2 and see the beautiful wedding creations from the Design Team they are truly gorgeous and we would love you to join us in our challenge and don't forget you can use any Cricut cartridge!

Thanks so much for vsisting me today. Have a great week everyone!

This week's challenge over at BBTB2 has been chosen by our lovely DT sister Caroline who asked us to create a card for a new arrival as she is shortly to become a grandma again. Congratulations Caroline!

I couldn't resist this cute baby elephant from the MS Birthday Cake Art cartridge!  My cuts are done at 5 3/4" and I welded 2 shadow cuts together using Cricut Design Studio to make a shaped card and also cut a separate shadow on its own to add to the front of the card (all cut using white cardstock). For my base cut I used Pink and white polka dot paper from a MAMBI stack and the white dots are flock so it feels lovely and soft to touch. Welcome baby girl is a cuttlebug die and before pop dotting the base cut to the card I added a pink dummy (pacifier) to her trunk tied with some black ribbon and a googly eye.

Pop over to BBTB2 and see the wonderful new baby projects the DT have created this week and jpin in our challenge!

Thans so much for visiting!
