We have a new challenge up for Bitten By the Bug 2 - Sweet. This can be interpreted in several ways - sweet treats for birthdays, sweet designs for a baby, etc.
I chose to make a birthday tag with this fantastic ice cream cut.
Both the tag and the ice cream came from the Sweet Treats cartridge. I love the tags on that cartridge! I used the current card sketch on the Tuesday Morning sketches for my tag front. I dug out my old SU corner rounding punch for the corners of the polka dot paper I put on top of the tag base. Three little brown glittered skittles and a big brown bow balanced it perfectly I think! Pink and brown has always been one of my favorite color combinations.
I gave the whipped cream on top an extra special touch by covering it with white liquid pearls and some pink microbeads.
When I was making the first tag I came across this little party hat on Sweet Treats and decided I should make a second tag as well with the same layout. I envision this one being for a boy's gift so I wasn't sure I wanted to put the brown bow on it - haven't decided what I will put instead.....perhaps some curling ribbon when I add it to the package.
I hope you'll join in the BBTB2 challenge and show us YOUR projects!
