You Make Me Feel Like Dancing
Happy BBTB2 Monday! I feel like dancing today, how about you? This week the challenge cut at BBTB2 is the flamingo from Cricut's Life's a Beach cartridge. I chose to use the triple flamingo cut on my card. After all, if one flamingo is good, three must be even better, right? And three dancing flamingos just take the prize!
I used two cartridges to create this card: Life's a Beach and Happy Hauntings. I am loving the frames on Happy Hauntings! I also used long nestabilities, plain and scalloped edge, as well as my I-Rock. I added silver beads to the flamingos and to the sentiment statement. I finished the card with a black and white striped ribbon, keeping with the formal feel of the card.
I wanted the background to be white, but not just flat white. I used a herringbone embossing folder and created a background insert for the frame. I am so happy that I remembered to emboss. I am not sure why, but I almost never remember to use embossing folders with my BBTB2 projects. I believe I get so involved in using the Cricut that I forget about embossing. I remembered today AFTER I used the nesties.
If you have not already done so, please stop by BBTB2 and check out the FABULOUS projects. My design team sisters WOW me every single week!
