Cuttlebug Be Inspired # 28

Good morning and welcome to this week's Cuttlebug Be Inpired Challenge. Have we got a treat for you today.

Our theme this week is "Home Sweet Home" and our sponsor is none other than Marks Paper Company. Wow! I love these papers and I think you will too. Check out the framed art I made using some of the papers from their Old Fashioned Courtship Collection.





Here is a closeup of the flowers.
I started by cutting out two of the flowers and making them my focal point. I added some crystal effects to the flower tops for a little extra beauty. For the background piece, I used my textiles folder and sanded it to reveal the core. Since the paper is two sided I couldn't resist folding one of my corners. I finished it off with brads, lace and ribbon.
Your gonna love what the design team did with this challenge. You can check out their work on the Cuttlebug Challenge blog. Just click on the link and you'll be whisked away to all kinds of creative decor.
We would be thrilled if you did the challenge with us. Just post a direct link to your creation on Mr Linky. You can find it on the Cuttlebug Challenge site. One lucky person who participates will be chosen to win a pack of papers from Marks Paper Co. What a deal!
I also want to remind you to mark your calenders for the upcoming Spa Weekend. The projects we've created for it are amazing and so are the prizes. The festivities will kick off on Friday, May 1 at 8:00 AM and will go all weekend. believe me, you don't want to miss it!

I hope you enjoyed today's post. I enjoyed creating it for you. Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by. TTFN
Hugs, Becky

I love this Becky, it's beautiful, and such an inspired way to use the gorgeous papers to such stunning effect! I didn't realise the papers were double sided, seeing as mine never arrived, so I went digi, but I love how you have incorporated that! Great work!
