Clearly, I'm having a bit of trouble crafting these days, so you'll have to wait for Macabre Monday to be posted on Wretched Wednesday. Awww, don't cry. LOL I did manage this week's BBTB2 challenge though, chosen by one of our fabulous new DT members, Stephanie. Stephanie wants to see Birthday Cards with pearls. My first thought was to go elegant of course, but last week while browsing through the booklet of Sesame Street Friends trying to remember why the heck I bought that cart, I came across this hilarious frog. THAT was why! Isn't she (actually I think he's called "frog prince". OOps! not today! LOL) about the cutest froggy EVER? There's a birthday coming up and considering how late I always am with cards (if they ever get sent at all) I decided this was a perfect opportunity. Clearly, she will know immediately this card is for her, but the surprise will be if it actually shows up in the mail. Better yet, on TIME! HeeHee!
Yup, shaped front. I'd actually checked My Cut Search to see if there already was a phrase "Hoppy Birthday" because I was feelin' kinda lazy and there was, on Birthday Bash. However, it didn't fit into my design all that well so I welded the shadow letters using the font from that cart instead. To make it a bit sturdier, I added a swirl from Ashlyn's Alphabet. I thhink it kinda makes it look like shes twirling. Well come on, I know it's Monday, but use your imagination. Besides, more places to put pearls.
There isn't quite as much regular dimension because I wanted to put our little ballerina on an action wobble. As it is, she's not exactly light on her feet, but she still dances...sort of. And aren't her pretty pearly toenails FAB?
Well, this obviously explains the choice of attire. I just love this sentiment. It does look a bit plain though, come to think of it, but I prefer the front of a shaped card to hide the inside sentiment and there wasn't a whole lot of room. Perhaps I can add a little something before I send it. My DT sisters have glorious inspiration this week (well, don't they ALWAYS?) so be sure and hop over to BBTB2 and have a look see. We sure would love it if you'd play along too, but we've been having a bit of trouble lately with people not following the rules. I sure hate to have to delete an entry, so please make sure you've got your bases covered before linking up. As always, you have 2 weeks for the challenge which means there's still time to enter our Rose Challenge HERE. Enjoy your week!
