Cuttlebug Challenge #15

Good morning everyone and welcome to my very first posting for the Cuttlebug Challenges design team. I'm so excited to be on such a fabulous team! I'm equally excited because our very first sketch challenge was designed by the one and only Becky Fleck! In fact, if you do the challenge with us, you could win a copy of her book "Page Maps" and she herself will be picking the winner. Now, how exciting is that?

You can find the layout as well as all the details on the Cuttlebug Challenges blog.

Here is the card that I made using Becky's wonderful layout:



Paper: White, Black Textured, Yellow DP (CTMH). Stamps: T.O.Y. (Studio G). Inks: Brilliance Graphite Black. Extras: Cuttlebug & Birds and Swirls Folder. Cricut & George Cart, Ribbon, Brads, Ribbon Punch, Crystal Stickers (Elements), Circle Punch.

The Cuttlebug folder I featured for this week's project is the Birds & Swirls Folder. One of my all-time faves!

I cut the flowers using my Cricut and George Cart and layered them, added a brad to each one and attached them with dimentionals. The sentiment oval was also cut using the Cricut and George Cart. I drew the inspiration for color from a shirt Miley Cyrus was wearing on Hanna Montana (you can find inspiration from just about anything, even a kids show, LOL). The minute I saw it I envisioned this card. Love it when that happens.

If you like what you see here you'll love what the other designers over on the Cuttlebug Challenges have in store for you. Hop on over and check it out!

Hugs to you and thanks for stopping by! TTFN
