Good afternoon
Today is Cuttlebugspot Challenge day and the last in the series this month for inspiration challenges. Nilda asked us to take inspiration from an advert from a magazine or anywhere else you might see an advert.
The only magazines I subscribe to are Craft Magazines (no surprise there lol!) so when I was at the hairdressers last week I found an advert which I liked and my hairdresser let me rip out the page but unfortunately it got too crumpled in my handbag to photograph ! I did however find this picture on the internet of the same bedding shown in the advert so I was good to go!
The inspiration for my card centres round the vivid colours of the flowers and I found this pretty vase of flowers? on my Cricut cart Pagoda (another I haven't used before!!!!). I cut the base out in black twice at   4  1/2" and cut off the branches of the second one so I could pop dot the vase whih I embossed with Cuttlebug folder Forest Branches. I had some orange, fuschia and purple cardstock in my stash but had to make my own turquoise card on my computer which I used to cut all the little flower pieces and I embossed the large ones with the small dot Cuttlebug folder that comes  with the 3x3 Cut and Emboss Butterly set. I embossed straight on to the card base using a Creative Expressions embossing folder called Crackle and some peeloffs for the little sentiment which I coloured fuschia and orange with permanent markers onto black card matted on turquoise.
Please pop over to The Cuttlebugspot and checkout the wonderful ideas and creations the rest of the DT have come up with and we'd love you to join in and there is a great prize you could win too!
Thank you so much for popping in today
