BBTB Birthday Girl and Presents Challenge
Okay guys, I know I'm way behind. Seems like the last two weeks were a blur and my creative mojo was somehow lost in all of the food, fun, and festivities. Although I have been doing a little designing with my Cricut Design Studio when I've finally settled down at night in front of the tv, the next morning it's been rush rush rush and the actual execution has fallen by the wayside. I apologize BUT I finally managed to make a card. The past challenges I missed over at Bitten by the Bug were to use the "Birthday Girl" cut from the Storybook cartridge and the presents from New Arrival. These seemed pretty convenient to combine, especially since I had sort of dropped the ball but really wanted to participate so here it is. I made a shaped card using Design Studio and the shadow feature, then cut the presents 3 times to get the different wrappings. Same with the bows, and I added some skittle-like flowers and adhesive pearls to decorate. "Birthday girl" was cut in shadow, then regular, then just "girl" in pink, again accented with adhesive pearls (don't you just love them?) and popped for dimension. You have no idea how happy I was to finally have something new to post. Hopefully I'm back on track and can start on this week's challenge. Be sure to stop by Bitten by the Bug and see what the fabulous designers have been cooking up.
