Love



Morning bloggie friends!! Hope ya had a great weekend!! I worked all weekend, but hey, that's okay. It just makes me that much for ready for the great new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. My wonderful DT Sister Julie is our hostess this week. She has challenged us to make a project with the theme Wedding/Wedding Anniversary. Since wedding season is upon us, now is a good time to get something made. I pulled out my Tie The Knot cartridge for this card. I used the card feature and cut the mat. It can be found in the #31 spot on the overlay. I cut it at 4.5 inches. Then on the #13 spot, you will find these cute little doves. I cut them at 1.75 inches. I used some faux pearl flourishes from Recollections to bling up the front. Then I finished the front off with a piece for crinkle ribbon and a double bow. Ribbon crinkled and dyed by 'Me'! On the inside I used a small piece of the flourish and used the 'Love' that cut from the mat. And of course, I can't get my picture colors to match no matter how many I take!!! Head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out what my DT Sisters made for inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!! And while you are there check out the rules to our challenges. They can be found in the right column. Then head to your crafty space and create something new with the theme, Wedding/Wedding Anniversary. You have until Sunday, May 5th to link it. So looking forward to seeing what you make!! Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
