Wednesday BE Inspired!

It seems like Wednesday's get here so quickly when I'm looking forward to something....a new card challenge. This week's Cuttlebug Challenge is so fun, a sketch challenge! Here's the sketch:

This week we have a wonderful sponsor, Alicia of Short Cuts. She has amazing products and has made it her mission to make scrapping simple! This week we got to play with sheetloads, her frosted and clear acrylic cards. I used the clear acrylic sheetload as the base of my card. You can create your heart out, anything you can dream, with these amazing little sheets!!! You can emboss them, paint them, cut them, the options are endless. And the winner of this week's challenge will get their own sheetloads to play with! Plus the DT at Shorcuts is also doing this challenge - an intersite challenge...how fun!
OK, on to the card:) Here it is:

I used my Cuttlebug and new "loved" Houndstooth embossing folder. My paper is DCWV, my little flower is a Hobby Lobby special, Melissa Frances rub-on, American Crafts ribbon, and K & Co. jewels.
Now go over to Cuttlebug Challenge and look at all the DT's amazing cards! Just beautiful!
And more exciting news, my Mom is a new team member at Inspirational! I'm so happy for her!
Enjoy!
