PBSC & Creative Moments Blog Party!

Good Morning!
I have 2 special things to share with you today, firstly my
and Secondly a Blog Party for CREATIVE MOMENTS that I design for.
Let's start off with my PBSC Card.
This week we have a theme of Pins & Pearls. I thought this would be a little tricky at first as I don't really use Pins on my cards but then I had the brainwave of threading some Pearl Beads onto some Safety Pins! I have to say I rather liked them and will definately use them on my cards again.
RECIPE:
* PB Stamped Image & Sentiment Inside
* Anita's Sentiment on Front
* Bo Bunny Papers
* Twinklets for the Cake Icing
* Ribbon, Pins & Beads from Stash
* Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' Embossing Folder
*********************************
Creative Moments are having a special blog party where throughout the day there will special Giveaways, Step by Steps, Competitions etc...
Something you definately can't miss out on!
My part for this was to create some cards using their sketch and papers :)
These cards aren't my usual style but it's good to do something different once in a while!

Here is how I made my cards ...
(Just be warned I'm not very good at Instructions lol )

* Start off by cutting a piece of card slightly smaller than your card base and stick to the front of your card. Repeat this process with a piece of Patterned Paper but make it smaller than the piece of card just cut. Stick the Paper onto the card.

* Cut 3 pieces of card into the shapes seen on the sketch, Cut Paper to fit these and then emboss the Paper with the Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots Folder. Stick the paper to the pieces of card.
Arrange them into position onto the card and place a strip of ribbon across the 2 small squares that will fit under the rectangular piece.
Glue all of these down.
* Round of another piece of card that will be for your 'Image' with a corner punch and repeat the same for a piece of white card you want to fit into it.
Decorate with Peel - Off Stickers then fix to your card using 3D Foam Squares.
Embellish the card with 2 Large Buttons on the rectangular piece.

Happy Crafting! xxx
