Cuttlebug be inspired 22

It's time! It's time!

Time to break out those punches cause for this week's Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge, we are getting creative with punches.

This is a good one for me because my punches are quickly taking over my craft room and it's nice to get a little more use out of them. It's amazing the uses you can find for them when you start to think about it.

For my card this week, I used a combination of circle punches, a flower punch and a border punch.

The body was made with my giga Punch and then punching an edge with my giga circle punch. I followed the same process except I reinserted it in the giga punch and punched just part of it. The tail feathers were made with a flower punch, cutting away all but three of the petals. It then embossed the wing and tail feathers with the paisley folder and the body and head with the swiss dots folder.

I free handed the branch and, thanks to my daughter bree and a marti gras mask we made last year that gave me some left over feathers, I was able to set my little blue bird in a nest. I love the way this turned out.

If you like this, you should see what the other DT members did with the challenge. Drop on by the Cuttlebug Challenge site and check it out and if you have some free craft time why don't you join in the fun. We'd love to see what you do with the challenge.

Be sure to add a direct link to your card or scrapbook page to Mr. Linky. You can find him over on the Cuttlebug Challenge site.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! TTFN

Hugs, Becky
