Wednesday Be Inspired

Hi! We're introducing a new Cuttlebug folder at Cuttlebug Challenge this week, the owl folder. It's one of my favorites! Here is a picture:

This week's challenge is to do a "woodsy theme" and a color challenge. So even if you don't have a Cuttlebug, you can still play along with some part of the challenge. Here is my creation:

I embossed my owl using my Cuttlebug on lime green cardstock, then onto brown cardstock, then blue. I added my Imaginescense patterned paper to the center of my card. I then cut just the owl itself out of the brown cardstock and did a little coloring to make him pretty. I then took my craft knife and cut the swirls of the folder out of the blue cardstock. I then layered all this onto my card, after spritzing the blue swirls with Tattered Angels glimmer mist. I added 2 small sticks for my owl to set on, adding nature to my card. My card is a bi-fold, so I used buttons and some twine to hold my card together. The tag is My Mind's Eye and I added a Melissa Frances Rub-On.
Now visit Cuttlebug Challenge so you can see the color combos for the challenge and the DT's amazing creations.
And check out this link to see my creation using the new Cuttlebug Harlequin Folder.
Enjoy!
