"B" Is For Birthday - BBTB Challenge

Happy Monday!

Well, it's that time again! Time for a new challenge over at Bitten By The Bug! This week we are to use the "B" from the Cricut Alphalicious cartridge. One thing we had to do...use the cut in a monogram type card. I cut my "B" out of some peachy colored glitter paper and then cut the shadow using some bright orange papers. I was inspired to use the orange and purple color combo by one of the paper samples over at Papertrey Ink. I made the little tag using my Printmaster program. This is one of my new Tilda stamps. She is so cute holding that yummy birthday cake. My MIL's birthday was last weekend and this is the card I made for her. I colored Tilda with my Copic markers. I made the polka dots on her dress by using my (0) colorless blender marker. I just touched the tip of the marker on the paper and the color disappeared.....and that's how I made polka dots! Is that cool or what? LOL! I finished off my card by adding a few Prima flowers about. The card base is Kraft card stock...my new favorite thing! The last thing I added was the 3 little rhinestones on the lower left of Tilda. My MIL is a special lady so I wanted to make her a special card!

Well, that's it for today. Please be sure to go over and check out the other designer's lovely works of art HERE. THANKS for visiting me today. Join me tomorrow for more card FUN! HUGS!

Love this, great cheerful colours. Thanks for the tip about the polka dots too, can't wait to try that out. At first I thought you had paper pieced the dress and ran it through the swiss dots folder. That's how effective it looks girlie.
