Treasure Life's Little Moments with Loads of Flowers!

I have had a BALL doing the Cuttlebug Challenges this month. These fabulous women are so creative, and I have learned so much from their tutorials and artwork. Truly, I never knew (or had it in my imagination) that I could do so much with this bug! I've mentioned it before, but new folders are coming out soon, and the gals have been previewing them all of July before CHA. Take a look at their site because you are not going to believe the awesome artwork they created for CHA!

Okay, on to my last entry for the month in the Cuttlebug Challenges. We were to make a gatefold card using our favorite folder. Right now I have two folders that are my favorites, so I combined them The first is Script, and it's pretty easy to tell which that is. On the inside of the card, I've made an embossed window with my nestabilities scalloped circles and I used the Stylized Flowers folder behind it. Because we were focusing on favorites and friendship this week, I loaded this card with flowers and ribbon. Sometimes what you've done with a card speaks for itself, so I added just a small sentiment on the inside - "treasure life's little moments." The sweet leaf and baby pink colors make this card very soft.

I can't wait to see what challenges come about next from the Cuttlebug blog! Even more though, I can't wait to get my hands on some new folders!!
