Love Is In The Air

Good morning all of my bloggy friends!! If you visit me on a regular basis, I'm sure ya'll know that I enter most of Bitten By The Bug 2 challenges. Well, I was asked if I would like to be on their Design Team!! Yes you read that right!! I was told to think about it for a few days and let them know. So instead of instantly screaming and yelling YES YES YES!!!!!, I took a couple of days to think. Then I said I would be honored!! So here I am, my first day on the Design Team for Bitten By The Bug 2 and am I ever excited!!
Our hostess for this weeks challenge is my DT Sister Brenda. The theme is 'Love is in the Air'. We would so love for you to create a 'new' card, layout or other project, using a heart or a Cupid from any Cricut cartridge to celebrate Valentines and love. You have until 11:59 pm, EST, Sunday, February 17th to link up your project.
I decided to make a 6x6 card. I used cream cardstock as my base. The first layer is a piece of red cardstock from Recollections and on top of that I put a piece of pattern cardstock from the Love 6x6 pad from Recollections. It is a Valentine's Day stack. I inked the edges with some Tattered Rose Distress Ink.
I pulled out my Sweethearts cartridge and decided to go with the heart and love sentiment on page 34. I used my trusty Gypsy Girl and turned the heart at an angle and welded it to the sentiment. I cut them at 5.25 inches in the same red cardstock. I did some doodling with my Sakura Gelly Roll pen. To finish off the front I cut apart some Prima Say It In Pearls. On the inside I used the same cardstocks and finished my layers with a piece of the red and then the cream for my inside sentiments. These are from the "Be My Valentine" stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I then finished the inside with a small piece of the pearls.
Well, that's it for my first day as a new DT member for Bitten By The Bug 2.
I sure hope that you decide to join us for this wonderful challenge. Just make sure you use a Cricut cut of a heart or Cupid, make a new project, link back to Bitten By The Bug 2. Can't wait to see what you create!!!
Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
