Cuttlebug Be Inspired #15

Birthday Celebration Day Two post is here with more blog candy......

Today's Cuttlebug Challenge was to create a card based on this Page Maps sketch by Becky Fleck. She'll be selecting the winner this week as well, so make sure you leave your link at the Cuttlebug Challenges blog using Mr. Linky. The prize....a copy of her book!!!


Here's the card I created from it. It measures 8.5"x3.75". I ran the Night of Navy, Very Vanilla and Kraft CS thru the Big Shot using various Cuttlebug folders. Then I punched them out in different shapes and sizes. I used Rain Dots, self-adhesive rhinestones, and buttons for embellishments.

Here are a few closeup shots so you can see the embossing on the different punch-outs.


Details
Stamps: "Thank You" by Inkadinkado
Ink: Night of Navy
Paper: Night of Navy, Very Vanilla, Kraft
Accessories: Blue and Ivory buttons from Michael's, Blue Rain Dots, Blue and Clear self-adhesive rhinestones, "D'vine Swirl" Cuttlebug Embossing folder, "Swiss Dots" Cuttlebug Embossing folder, "Fancy Corners" Cuttlebug Embossing folder, "Tiny Bubbles" Embossing folder, 1-3/8" circle punch, 1-1/4" circle punch, 3/4" circle punch, 1/2" circle punch, Scallop circle punch, 5-Petal Flower punch

Shannon
