So I thought I would give the Cuttlebug Challenge blog a shot for the first time. The challenge was to use one of Becky Fleck's sketches. I love her sketches and use them a lot when I am making a card or scrapbook layout. I really like this sketch and I have used it before.
This is the sketch (by Becky Fleck) we are to use for the Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge #15.
Here is one card I made for the challenge. I pulled out all the flower dies I own and started cutting away. I stamped "Happy Birthday" on a piece of Tim Holtz Fragments and attached it to the card.
This card is probably taking the sketch to it's extreme. I layered all the elements on one side of the card. So you would start at the Sun and scan down to the clouds, the ship, the big fish, and then finally to the seaweed. I used all kinds of Cuttlebug dies and embossing folders. It was really fun and I have been wanting to make something with the pirate ship die for quite a while now. But this is going to make a super cool birthday card for a little boy.
So I'm not sure if I can have 2 cards in this challenge so I'll pick the pirate ship card for the official card of the challenge.
That's it for now.
Thanks for looking.
