Happy Valentine's Day - BBTB2 Contest

Hey there, if you've been on my blog in the last week or so then you've already seen this card in the post below, as I also used it for Taylored Expression Sketch Challenge #98. It started off to be my entry to the Bitten By The Bug 2 contest but thought I would combine it with another challenge.

The BBTB2 contest was to make any valentine's project, using any cut from any Cricut cartridge but you had to add purple in the color theme. I really liked that idea because it's the color theme in my downstairs bathroom and a little bit in my bedroom but with much more latte color. For some reason I've liked that color combo for home decor for awhile.

Since this will Scott's Valentine's card I made a matching box using the Stationary Box with a Frame Top from The Cutting Café designed by the very talented Regina Easter. Her set comes with 4 different tops, the frame (the one I used), circle opening, rectangular opening and a solid top.

So here's my entry in the BBTB2 contest:


Scott's favorite candy bar is Snickers, just in case you were wondering ;p




With masking tape I used the same stamp as the inside of the card, I just stamped each word separately on the tags (also, those really pretty diamond pins were given to me by a friend of mine, Tracy Gough all the way from England, thanks again Tracy!):


Inside of the card:


Most of you know that I love to embossing my stamping images:


Back of the card & envie:


The greatest stamp for card makers!
