BBTB2 Layered Flowers Challenge



WooHoo! I wasn't sure I was gonna make this one because yesterday I was quite under the weather, but this morning I was able to pull myself together and finish her up. Yea, me! I hate to let the team down or disappoint you all (or myself, for that matter). Our sweet and fabulously talented DT sister Jeri chose layered flowers this week for our BBTB2 challenge. She suggested the Bloom cart (which I can't believe I don't have) but as always, you may play along with any cartridge as long as it's a new creation, follow the challenge and link it up to BBTB2. I don't have to remind you to use your Cricut, do I? LOL In the spirit of trying to actually use some of the bazillion carts I've accumulated I chose Sophie for my flower cuts, along with "Just Because" Cards for the words and Don Juan for the "&".



It's all welded in DS to a base from George. Yup, it's a shaped front card again. I apologize for the lack of creativity in the color scheme, but I used papers that were still laying around from previous projects because my brain wasn't up to making other choices.


It actually ended up with more dimension than I planned because the largest flower had plenty more room for petals without compromising the original design so layer I did. Each is embossed with Swiss dots and the cool yellow stamens are from a McGill punch. LOVE it! And wait 'til you see the gorgeous flowers from my teammates this week. Wowsers! If that isn't inspiration, I don't know what is. Hope you join us at BBTB2 and BTW, there's still a week left for the Numbers challenge too. We sure love it when you play along.

The first thing I noticed was the "dot" theme to the papers and thought, how cute is that? I love the layers. I wish I could be half so creative when not feeling well!

Gorgeous as always Donna! I'm so glad your feeling better! I was pushing it too to the last minute and so wanted to do this challenge because I just Love flowers and funny thing is I almost used the Shopie cart too but couldn't decide on which image! Then used something totally differant, lol! I just Love that stamen punch I've been on the look out for it but always get side tracked and wind up forgetting it, lol! Well I'm so glad you didn't dissapoint us and got your project finished, I always look forward to seeing them!

I think I'm your biggest fan when it comes to your 3D projects...they're always over the top (which is a good thing!) wonderful! This card is no exception...I'm loving all the polka dots and pop-dots!

I feel so bad that I haven't been visiting as much lately...I'm blaming it on my iPad 'cuz everytime I visit your blog the background is black w/ red letters and I can't read the text due to my tired old eyes. HaHa....it's a bit creepy really....just like a few of your posts! Back to my laptop just so we can visit!

:Dxx
