BBTB2/Bird


The oh so talented, sweet and beautiful Krista is our BBTB2 hostess this week. Krista asked us to design from Birthday Bash and we could use the Armadillo cut or a Bird Cut. I don't have BB, so I went to my Give A Hoot cartridge and selected a pretty bird to work with. I found some lovely Creative Memories paper with soft colors, I created some fancy edge punching with my EK Success punches. I cut the bird twice so I could lift up the wings. I just felt this soft and gentle card should become a Sympathy card so I used one of Regina's circle sentiments from her Cutting Cafe printables. This is one of Regina's sets from 2009 and you can see the sentiments right here.


I hope that you have come my way by way of the Bitten By The Bug2 blog. I am so proud to be part of this talented design team. Thanks for your visit, and I always appreciate it when you leave a comment.

Gorgeous card, Carole. I just love your creativity with the punches. You're such an inspiration. I'm always forgetting about punches and embossing. Then I get the card done and think...shoulda used a punch, especially when I see what you do with them.
