My Girl ! BBTB challenge !

Well i really had to get my thinking cap on for this challenge ! Regina asked us to use the accent essential cart and to use the accent 49 cut !! I had been wanting to do some layouts for a while now and thought the cut would make a wonderful border.
I used black red and cream papers by Autum leaves i think it's called foof a la. Autumn red cardstock and black soot distress ink by Tim Holtz. The border down the left is the accent 49 cut and i added some croched flowers with little cream pearls . The my girl was cut 3 times and layered from the storybook cart and i covered them with glossy accents, then pop dotted them off the page. I also cut two flourishes from the accent cart and added a larger croched flower. I added just a few buttons in the same colours ! You have to check out what all the other designers did this week !! They are one talented group of ladies ! see there wonderful designs HERE !

Seasons greetings ! BBTB challenge

What a great challenge again this week, The BBTB team were asked asked to use the pear cut from the home accent cart and i knew straight away i was going to make a christmas card !!

I cut the scrolled background from the storybook cart then i heat embossed it with white holographic embossing powder ( so pretty ). My pears are heat embossed with gold around the edges and centres and i used the cuttlebug to dry emboss the fleshy section of the pears. The leaves are covered with lime stickles. I used a inkidinky christmas stamp which i also embossed with the gold. Thanks all for looking and please check out all the amazing other creations at BBTB !!!
