Good morning!!! I sure hope ya'll had a great weekend. I sure did. Great Saturday and an awesome day of worship yesterday, so I'm ready to tackle this week. We are starting it off over at Bitten By The Bug 2 with a wonderful new challenge. Our hostess for this week is my wonderful DT Sister Stephanie. She has challenged us to use purple for February's birthstone, the amethyst. Also use a cake or cupcake from any Cricut cartridge. Hope ya'll are up for the challenge, 'cus this is a good one!!
I made an A2 card using a purple card base. The on top of that I put a black layer and then I put this great patterned paper I found when I was rummaging through all of my stash. I was a shaped piece of cardstock but I liked it so much I just had to cut it down for this card. Using the Elegant Edges cart I cut two of the oblong shadow shapes from page 61. I know it has a name but I'm sorry that I didn't make note of that. I cut two at 4.25, one at 3.75 and one at 3.25 inches. I did some faux stitching around the edge of the black layer and on the tags. Then I wrapped some Orchard twine from The Twinery around the tags. On top of this I popped up the cupcake that I cut from the Once Upon A Princess cart. You can find this one on page 49. I cut it at 3.50 inches. I used my Gyspy Girl to design my card, so I hid the tick marks on the icing and the little sprinkles so they wouldn't cut. I used some Studio G gemstones instead. Also added some in one corner. I finished off my cupcake with some doodling. I added my sentiment on the inside. It is a wooden stamp that I have in my stash. I finished if off with the stitching and a bow made with the Orchard twine and gemstones in one corner.
Head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the great projects my DT Sisters have created for inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!! Then head to your crafty space and create a project using purple and a Cricut cut of a cake or cupcake. Please make sure you use a Cricut cut and make a new project for this challenge. No back links please. Also, please make sure you link directly to your project and not just to you blog site.
Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
