BBTB2/FMK/Card


Happy Monday to each of you. This week's challenge was selected by our design team sister, DeeDee, and she chose From My Kitchen cartridge and we were to use the card cut on page 59. That would be the ice cream sundae key, with a shift and "tabs" feature. Here is my card.

The base of the card has blue paper that had great texture, and then I put it through the Cuttlebug embossing folder to get those pretty scattered flower impressions. The FMK card cut is pink, and I used the negative flowers to add along the lower rim of the pink card. I put a few jewels on the pink buds, added two pretty blue ribbons, and the sentiment "Spring" is from my Blackletter cartridge. I love print that has a calligraphy feel to it and this cartridge does the trick. I found a wee butterfly laying in a tray and I just added her to the scene. Please pop over and visit BBTB2 to see the cards the other designers presented. You'll love them as I do.

I always love how you know what papers to use to make everything look awesome! I love the way the letters look in that beautiful patterned paper. BTW, I have this cart and I had no idea this was there! Thanks for sharing, ~Diane
