Doodlecharms Dragonflies for BBTB




We were asked to use any cut from the doodlecharms cartridge this week, using the border feature. I chose the dragonflies - I was in the mood for 'pretty' when I made the card. I cut twice at 2 1/2", once on plain white cardstock, then again on white vellum, which I ran through the cuttlebug using swiss dots. I added dots of liquid pearls and a huge ribbon bow. The 'top note' cut was done with my die from go-kreate, love this die. I used the leafy embossing folder for this, and distressed all the edges in pale pink chalk ink.
This week we are having a bit of a blog hop, for everyone of you who leaves a comment on this post, you will be in with a chance to win.............................................................



two packs of yummy ribbons from Fancy Pants and Making Memories, and an SEI 'Friend' word book, which would make a fabulous birthday card for a special friend. The ribbons are a variety of chenille, velvet, rickrack................ooh, I do love ribbon. So leave a comment, making sure you leave your name so that I can identify you when I draw the winner next sunday. Then hop over to Carole's blog and see what she is offering, then follow her links to the next BBTB DT member who is offering candy. If you hop around to all the blogs you will have a good chance of winning yummy candy. Be patient today though, as we all live in different time zones and it may take a while for us all to get on board with this
All the designs can be seen on the Bitten by the Bug site
