Welcome to BBTB2. Our hostess this week is Stephanie. Stephanie is one of our newest design team members and I know she was excited to do her very first hostess assignment for our DT. I remember back....maybe 2007 when I was a new team member for Regina on Bitten By The Bug, and it was my turn to hostess. I was so giddy, I embarrassed myself. I simply could not believe I was part of Regina's team. She was my card-makin' hero and still is to this day.
Stephanie asked us to design with a birthday day theme and to include some pearls in the mix. I knew that one of my favorite cartridges, STAMPING, would have the birthday sentiment and a really neat cake. The background paper was laying around, and I think it might be an Amy Butler paper. I added a doily edge punch from my EK Success punch line (love 'em)..at the top there are 3 layers of scallops, and in the center I added a pretty little ribbon. I love this Happy Birthday cut from Stamping, and the little cake is sweet upon a Nestie mount. A lot of embossing goin' on, which doesn't surprise my regular visitors.
