BBTB2 Cloud.....

Well, I did it! I actually got my act together enough to participate this week in the Bitten By The Bug 2 Design Team Post. I apologize to all my other Design Team members that I have been such a slacker. Trying to participate when I can....

This week our challenge was chosen by Shelly. She picked the cloud on Pooh and Friends or any other cloud on a Cricut cartridge. I have used most of the other clouds before so I decided to play by the rules and use the one on Pooh and Friends. Remember you can go on over to Bitten By the Bug 2 and play along with us and post your project.
I will say that although not complicated, I am proud of myself for actually completing the project! I took the cloud and welded it together in my Gypsy to make a card base. The approximate size of the card is 5" x 7". The stars are from the Rock Princess cartridge the the hearts on the string I cut from a piece of Echo Park patterned paper.
To make the card a little more exciting I used a Gelly Roll Starburst pen. Seriously, I've said it before, but this is my "go to" pen if I feel like I need something on my project but don't know what.
Well, that is it...pretty easy but gets the challenge requirements done. Why did I pick the stars?? because I picked the sentiment from My Pink Stamper's Encourage Me set as soon as I read the word "cloud".  I love the set and want to make something with each and every sentiment.

Cricut Cartridges Used
