BBTB2/Princess (the Word)
Happy Monday... I am so glad you are visiting me to see the Monday card challenge for the BITTEN BY THE BUG2 design team. Mona, our sweet DT sister, is the hostess and she asked us to design with the word "princess". You may use this word from any cartridge. I do not have a cartridge that had the welded word so I opted to use Blackletter and to cut each letter individually.
Let me admit. I almost opted out of this challenge. I have not had as difficult a time in creating a card in a long time and this one did me in. Four times!.... I made 4 other cards and they were so NOT, I tossed them. This card is the 5th attempt and I have to admit, I don't like it. But I never ever want to miss a challenge so here I am with what could be called a birthday card for a little girl. And as is so typical when things aren't going smoothly, after I photographed the card for upload, after I transferred the photos to my computer and I reviewed them, I discovered two of the little pearls had fallen off. Back to the studio, add the pearls, back to the patio to photograph again... sigh.... Last year in Michaels I was wandering around their dollar bins and I found the jewel butterflies and I bought several packages. I was cleaning the little bins and cups of whatnots yesterday and I found them. I decided to further annoy this card and I would add two. There are mini pearls as well...on the crown and on the lifted sentiment. Everything is embossed as it my usual style.
Please join in... create a new card using the word Princess from any Cricut cartridge, upload that card to Mr. Linky on our BBTB2 design team blog, be sure to mention on your blog you have participated and name the cartridge you used...and please make sure you have disabled that horrid word verification. I cannot read the letters and if I visit your blog to say thank you and comment on your card entry, and the WV pops up, I can leave no comment. I know you've visited BBTB2 to enjoy all of the wonderful creations from my design team sisters.
