Cuttlebug Be Inspired 22

Good morning! How are you today? Are you ready for a challenge?

It's time for this weeks Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge, and what a great challenge it is. Today we are glittering Sweet'n Sassy Stamps images. Korin has been kind enough to share a couple of the latest digital releases with us and they are fabulous!

I chose to work with the butterfly, because as you know, they are very near and dear to my heart.

The best part about working with digital images for me was the ability to adjust the size of the image. I chose to make my butterfly very large and placed it on a 5 1/2 inch square card.

I just printed it off my computer, colored it with my copic markers and cut it out. I then covered it with crystal stickles and while it was drying I assembled the rest of my card.
A butterfly this big and colorful calls for bling. I pulled out my Say It With Crystals for the butterfly trail and antannaes. I also added some Crystal Stickers to the ribbon. I love how realistic the butterfly looks, don't you?
If you like what I did with the challenge you're surely gonna love what the design team did. Why don't you pop over to the Cuttlebug Challenge site and check out all the fabulous cards. You're gonna ohhh and ahhhhh over them and also our new blog design.
We would love for you to join us in this week's Cuttlebug Challenge and we would really love to see your work. All you have to do is post a link to Mr. Linky. Make sure to link directly to your card.
Stamps: Moths & Butterflies. Paper: Kraft, Colorbok DP, Black Textured, Printed Vellum. Extras: Cuttlebug, Frills Folder, Allegro Folder, Say It With Crystals, Crystal Stickles, Oval Coluzzle, Fiskars Border Punch, Ribbon.
So glad you stopped in! Have a great day! TTFN
Hugs, Becky

Becky, this is beautiful! It looks Mom-inspired, which makes it all the more special. What kind of printer did you use to print it out? I've seen some really cute digital images lately but wasn't sure how my Copics would react to the ink or toner.

Hope you have a great weekend!
