Bitten By The Bug 2.....Time 4 Fun...

This week on Bitten By the Bug 2 it was, Heather, our super fabulous leader's turn to pick the challenge. She chose the "Time 4 Fun" cut on Cuttin' Up. It is on page 74. I have to be honest and say that although this was one of the very first cartridges I purchased I have never used it--but.....I can NO longer say that!!!!
Seriously, I'm not too sure if I am happy with my project. I had a difficult time deciding what to do with this cut. I guess I was "challenged", LOL!
I used a card cut also on Cuttin' UP and welded the Time 4 Fun shadow in. I then cut the regular Time for fun and attached it. The paper is sort of funny. I have a huge stack of old paper that I use for "test" cuts. It is a mix of stuff I don't like anymore, out of date, too thin, too thick--whatever. I chose the next piece on top to test cut the card base and noticed that the next three sheets were from the same line. Guess what??? I just went for it. That could attribute to why I don't like the project very much but it is done.
I hand cut the flowers out of the patterned paper and the bracket is also from Cuttin' Up. I stamped the Happy Birthday with the new My Pink Stamper Font-abulous set mixing up the upper and lower case.
Please make sure you go check out what all my other teammates made with this cut. Then join in the challenge yourself and upload your picture HERE.
