Good morning
Happy Monday everyone the start to another week, I don't know where the time is going this year I can't believe it's July already!
Here is my card for the Cuttlebug Spot challenge this week. Nilda asked us to make something that was funny eg stamp or funny sentiment.
Here is my card! It's a 6x6" card and the backing paper is Making Memories Brooke collection. The stamped image is a download from Pink Petticoat and I cut it as a circle with my circle Nestabilities and cuttlebug. She is coloured with Promarkers and I did not have a light grey for the elephant so I used light grey eyeshadow!!! I have layered her bow and booty with pop dots. I cut a scalloped circle @ 5" using Mini Monograms and my Cricut and embossed with sizzix folder dots (it's almost the same as cbug swiss dots except the dots are a little bigger and so is the folder) I added some flowers from Poppicrafts and little pink polka dot buttons are from Bloomin Felt. The sentiment Sorry I forgot is computer generated (can't remember the font) and the 'I'm so behind' actually came with the image stamp from Pink Petticoat in black so I took it into my graphics programme where I have learnt that I can change image to png then this allows me to change it to any colour!
Lots of pop dotting on this card and finished off with some pink gems. So now I have a belated birthday card in case I need one which with my memory these days may be very soon lol!
Thanks for visiting today and why not come over to the Cuttlebug Spot and join us, We'd love to see your creations and there's a fab $20 prize up for grab from Custom Crops!
Have a lovely week
