WooHoo! It's that time of the month again for the BBTB Blog Hop. Hope you're all having a fun time. With any luck you have landed here from Carole's blog. If you happened here by chance you can follow along or start at the beginning HERE. This week our challenge was to use the ribbon from Paper Pups.
I chose to do one of my usual shaped front cards welding a number of elements in Cricut Design Studio to a rectangular base from George and Basic Shapes. The star cluster is from Wildcard and the sentiment is from Lyrical Letters. By strategically welding the elements I was able to eliminate the bird that is part of that sentiment and only had to trim it off on the top layer. #1 is the Roly poly feature in Plantin Schoolbook and the 2 right hand single stars are also from George.
I used several layers and popped them using foam dimensionals. It's hard to see in the pic, but I added texture to the stars using the new Stars Cuttlebug folder as well as the all time favorite Swiss Dots. I also used Swiss dots to add interest to the blue ribbon.
Well you know it wouldn't be mine unless I used a few adhesive beads for embellishment. No, I don't own stock in the company but I wish I did. LOL I also wish I had better glasses for this closeup work. Time for another eye exam!
Now just for leaving a comment on this post you can win this fun mix and match book kit from K &Co and these extra adorable dimensional animal stickers (hard to give up but I LOVE you guys). The winner will be chosen by Random DH (Sorry, I'm technologically challenged but he has no idea what's going on so there's no possibility of cheating) on Sat. Sept 5. Next up is by fabulously talented DT sister DeeDee. Hop right on over HERE and enjoy her sure to be wonderful take on this challenge. Have fun and win big! And don't forget to play along. Thanks so much for joining the BBTB Blog Hop! Hugs! D
