Happy Labor Day
Happy Labor Day and BBTB2 Monday. I hope that all of you have had a lovely long weekend. We have had a nice relaxing weekend, I even managed to spend most of one full day in my scraproom. It was very nice, I finished two BBTB2 challenges with The Sound of Music playing in the background!
This week's challenge cut at Bitten By the Bug 2 is a Reader's Choice where we had to use a number from the Mini Monograms cartridge. I chose to use numbers as part of the face on my clock. The clock is from the Picturesque cartridge. I used the Amy Chomas mini pen holder and glitter pens to add the numbers to the clock face. Amy's products are fabulous - in fact, I have added her button to my sidebar so that you can find her with ease.
The clock shadow cut used a super-heavy weight glitter cardstock. I normally use the "multi cut" feature set for 2 cuts when cutting glitter cardstock. This cardstock was soooo heavy it needed three multiple cuts to cut completely through. The clock was affixed to burgundy Swiss dot cardstock. I used my favorite Stampin' Up border punch on the edges of the burgundy matting.
I used my printer to add a sentiment to the from of the card prior to cutting out the card. I think this will be a wonderful anniversary card as the sentiment reads: Every minute spent with you you makes me smile.
I finished the card by adding layered flowers with gem centers over the clock flourish. I used three different flowers, white, black, and black & white. I also added a smaller flourish in the blank area. The small flourish was cut using Cindy Loo.
Please do go over and check out the design team projects at BBTB2. I seem to be one of the few who was not ready to embrace Halloween just yet.
