BBTB Phone Challenge
Hi all, I have been wanting to play along with the "Bitten By The Bug" weekly challenge for a long time. It's one of the main reasons I created this blog. So for the first week since having a blog, I was lucky enough to have the "From My Kitchen" cartridge, which they chose for the challenge. This cute phone cut comes from that cartridge cut at 3" with black cardstock. I used the text bubble from Going Places for the sentiment. Not sure of the proper name for it. That was cut at 1 3/4" in red heavy dp. The sentiment was created on the computer and trimmed with a trimmer and corner rounded. I can't remember the brand of paper that the background paper is but It reminds me of sound waves so that's why I used it! That and it's just so cheerful! :D
I used sparkle white paper on the star ond center oval and the little highlight. I used 3 orange mini brads and some gingham and dotted red ribbon. I matted it on light blue CS. And did a little doodling. I was planning on adding the word, Valentine, somewhere on the card but it didn't work out. Maybe I'll put it on the inside. So happy to be playing and also happy to be growing skillwise. There are no spots of glue or crooked papers on this so I am getting better! Worthy of playing with the awesome design team at BBTB! Thanks for looking. Please be my first follower!
