Hi everyone
It's BBTB2 challenge Monday and today our lovely Michelle chose the theme 'Let's get Wet!' You can use anything water related using any cut from any Cricut cartridge.
As my dad has his birthday this coming Wednesday I thought I would make this card for him, so it's very clean and simple.  He loves the sea and used to love to sail!
I used a DL card and covered it with some DCWV stripey blue paper for my sea and sky setting. I cut these simple yachts with lovely swirly crest waves using Wall Decor and more cartridge using white for the base cut and I cut 2 black shadows so I could layer them for some dimension.  The word dad has been cut using gold mirri card and the digital cartridge  Craftroom Basics which comes free in CCR with the Cricut Mini machine.  I cut them in different sizes to fit the sails. Finally Happy birthday is a white rub on on a scrap of black card layered on to white.
Please go and look at all the fabulous projects from the BBTB2  DT this week and be sure to let us see your gorgeous creations too!
It's Bank Holiday Monday here in the UK so hope you all have a fabulous day,me I'm off to work soon!!!
Thanks for popping in!

It's my pleasure to host the BBTB2 challenge this week!  I asked my DT sisters to create a project using Moons and/or Stars using any Cricut cartridge of their choice.
When I decided on this challenge I couldn't get the song 'By the light of the silvery moon ' out of my head, hence the design of my card!

I used Paper Doll Dress Up for the moon and stars and welded the couple from Sweethearts to the moon then welded   to a rectangle to form the shaped card.  I cut the front welded shapes again in silver and then the stars again in yellow and 2 more of the couple on their own in white. I embossed the silver layer with an embossing folder (sizzix but the name escapes me) and the stars with Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder. I covered the back of the card with midnight blue glitter paper. Finally I pop dotted  all my layers to the front for dimension.

Please pop over to BBTB2 and see the beautiful creations from the rest of the DT  and we would love to see your creations too!

Thanks so much for popping in today

Have a wonderful week!
