Guest Designer Challenge Today!! Be Inspired #20









Being on the Design Team for Cuttlebug Challenge is very exciting to me, but especially when we feature a guest designer! Today's challenge features a sketch the very talented artist, Valerie Salmon, brought to us just for you! Isn't it gorgeous? She is going to choose one of your cards to win a subscription to her GOT SKETCH? publication!!! Valerie's bio includes: currently being Creative Team Member of Scrapbooks, Etc., and Fiskars Designer (Heidi Grace, Cloud 9, Li'l Davis), Scarlet Lime Designer, also the 2007Paper Crafts Magazine's 1st Gallery Idol, 2006 Memory Makers Master, 2005 Paperkuts Power Team Member. and she has been published hundreds of times!!! We are so proud to have her as our guest designer for you today!!
My card features beautiful, bold DCWV two sided paper, and I've showcased both sides. The accent paper is Sonshine CS embossed with Swiss Dots. The flowers and smoky gems are Prima, and the stamps are StudioG. The heat embossing powder is translucent Sahara Pearls by Stamp-N-Stuff. The scalloped square is cut twice from the Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge, and the scallop band is Plantin Schoolbook.
It's your turn to create something wonderful from Valerie's sketch. Link your card to Mr. Linky on the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog, and you could be the Winner of the Card of the Week!
