Cuttlebug Inspirations Challenge # 15

Time for another challenge at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog! This week's challenge is awesome because it is inspired by Becky Fleck, the writer of Page Maps and designer for Basic Grey. We are using one of her layouts this week and here it is:

And here is my take on the project:

I used My Mind's Eye paper embossed with the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls folder. I then used my Nestabilities to cut out my little scalloped circles, Papertrey Ink stamps, Cricut "Hello Kitty Sentiments" cartridge for my strawberries, and buttons with Martha Stewart twine. The strawberries are special because I ran them thru my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder - I just inverted them so the dots were embossed down and I could fill each dot with red stickles for my strawberry seeds.

This challenge is very special BECAUSE Becky Fleck herself is going to pick the winner of the challenge, so put your thinking cap on and make the best card possible! And I here the winner might be getting her Page Maps book! Hmmmm, so you may get your card viewed and chosen by a famous scrapbooker and win a book! How much better can that get!
Enjoy.

Beautiful card!! The strawberries are very cute! I'm also admiring your scalloped pieces - I bought my first set of Nestabilities today (YEAY!) but when I got them home I realised that the smallest scallop was missing from the pack
:(
I was so disappointed as I was hoping to start this card challenge tonight using them.
Peace & love
