Be Inspired #16!




Formerly known as the Cuttlebug Challenge,,,,now, Be Inspired!!! And we surely hope that you are! This week's challenge is to remind us that Stressed backward is DessertS, and we were to D*stress our card in some fashion. So I d*stressed mine with a nail file and sanded the tops of the impressions left by the Cuttlebug embossing folder. Very easy, and very impressive! LOL
Okay, enough of the play on words...I love the blue and green color combo. The cards for the background and the solid green came in a note card kit, so they matched perfectly. The flower was from a great new kit from Imaginesce, and the ribbon is Kiwi dots from M's. I colored the clear stick-on rhinestones with Sharpie markers to make them blue and green to match.
Now it's your turn! How will you distress your card? Tear, sand, use a distressing tool on the edges, anything will do...just check out Cuttlebug Challenge and see what the rest of the design team has done! Then link your card to Mr. Linky, and show us your card!!
Also, be sure to check out Jenn's video on Nestabilities and Cuttlebug...it was the #1 video on the web!!! Congratulations, Jenn!!! There are awesome things going on over there. Don't miss out.
