Spring has Sprung BBTB Challenge















Happy Monday! Is everybody out there feeling Springy? This week at Bitten by the Bug Regina chose the "Spring" cut from the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. I made a shaped card by welding my sentiment in Design Studio using my choice of the required cut and letters from All Mixed Up to some tulips and daffodils from Walk in my Garden and grass from Zooballoo. This shaped front was then welded to a rounded rectangle from George. I highlighted the letters with my fave adhesive pearls and cuttled the grass for texture with the forest branches folder. Of course there were several layers to pop for dimension and the darling Queen & Co. garden brads finished it off. the little butterfly and bee are on springs I made by winding 26 guage wire around a wooden skewer. Be sure to stop by Bitten by the Bug to see how my Design Team sisters rocked this challenge and I hope you'll be inspired to play along.
