You're the Bomb card (for the BBTB2)

Using the card feature from any cartridge was the challenge this week at the BBTB2.  I went with Wild Card 2 and made this ticking time bomb card for my teen son, who will find it hilarious (aren't all teenage boys ticking time bombs anyway?)!  I cut it at 4 1/2 inches and it is smaller inside than I expected, but should work just fine for a short funny message and some candy in his lunchbox.  I cut the "You're the Bomb" sentiment at 4 1/2 also, thinking it would be proportional, but it was too large, so I put it on the envelope instead.  This is only the second card I've made from this cart and I'm still figuring out it's quirks.

I can't wait to see what creative cards people make this week!  The BBTB2 DT members have some very cool cards to look at for inspiration.  So have some fun making a card this week and link it up!
