Paula and Donna's Cuttlebug Challenge.



Well I got my long awaited Cuttlebug last Thursday and have used it for the first today, think i was scared of it lol. So a fellow One Stop Craft dt member Paula and I decided to set each other a challenge, to make a card using our cuttlebugs by Monday, well had a bit of a family problem to sort out yesterday so we decided to post it today. Ok its a real simple card lol but at least I can now say i have used my cuttlebug. I'm waiting for my Swiss dots folder to arrive so hopefully it will be here soon, i have big plans for it. Anyway, on this card i have used one of my 'With Love' border folders to make the flower and i have added little purple gems. The rest is self explanatory really so I'll not insult you with instructions. The little 'Thanks' embellishment was sent to me by one of my sbs sisters, Kimberly. Anyway, off to have another go with the cuttlebug and see what i can come up with, check out Paula's card, its beautiful, well done Paula. x
I have decided to enter this card for the Papertake Weekly Challenge as I am falling behind with my challenges and their theme this week is 'Simply Sparkling' well my card is definitely simple and the gems sparkle, great.
