Got to do a challenge!


So, I was blurfing the other day and came across Sharon Johnson's blog~ and saw this fabulous card. I had dies this size, but was never able to get them to work. Very disappointing.

So, after reading Sharon's question and answers I gave it another go~
So, I successfully was able to use the smaller dies, and was trying figure out what I wanted to do~
then I saw the ways to use it challenge~ wow, do I ever have some primas!! You didn't have to use primas, but I *need* to use some up!!

So, here it is....I am happy with it~ I will need to make more thanks you's, this is a good start!!
I am still working on putting my craft room back together, and hopefully I will have new stamps to share with you next time!

Details: Short & Sweet, In the spotlight; WW CS; Sky & Celery Classic inks, flirty originals ric rac, white generic ric rac, bling brads from Michaels; & Cuttlebug small circle die.
Pin It Now!

I love this! I've seen something similar using the squares and keep thinking I need to pull them out and use them. I love what you've done here. Great colors and way to use those primas.

This is gorgeous! I love how the embossed circles frame the flowers perfectly. I have those little folders, too, and I've never used them--I'll have to try it out now.

I don't have any of the small cuttlebug dies and was just wondering how you use them? Did you use the embossing folders and how did you get 3 in a row like that?
