I was very inspired by the notched edges.  They were easy to make.  I just used my 1" circle punch and kept taping them to each other so I would get the same size notch.

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge is up again this week with a Color Challenge.
Here it is...

Our sponsor this week is Butterfly Reflections Ink...an online scrapbooking store!
Thanks Vanessa...for donating a $20 gift certificate to her store to a lucky random winner! 



Here's what I came up with this week...
 supplies: papers-white cs (neenah); ink-pear tart(memento), graphite black (archival), patina,honeydew and slate glimmermist (tattered angels); stamp - heidi swapp; accessories- dry embossing folder sunburst (sizzix) and butterfly die and dry embossing folder (sizzix).

Here's a close up...
All the colored paper was colored with glimmer mist and/or stamp pad.  On the dry embossing folder  I rubbed the ink pad directly on it.  For the butterflies, I sprayed glimmermist on a paper towel and then rubbed it on the white cs to get the effect.  I did stamp on the white cs before I ran it through my Big Shot.  Have to say I am loving this card!!! :)

we'll be friends til we're old....

Over at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog we have a new challenge starting today and running until next Saturday.  Come on and join in the fun!!! 

Our sponsor this time is so generous!  Canvas Corp sent the DT Sweeties some amazing product to work with! 
Canvas Corp is generously providing a fabulous prize for our randomly chosen winner.
The winner will receive a $50 prize package of Canvas Corp's Mixology Collection products and matching embellishments. Wow!

Here's the card I made using their orange burlap, mixology cs and sun sisters glimmermist...
supplies: s (studio calico) and mixology (canvas corp), orange burlap (canvas corp) and sunsisters glimmer mist ( tattered angels).

Here's a close up...
I didn't want to color it...I thought the pattern paper from studio calico gave it enough color.  I wanted the black and white image to really stick out and not blend in.  

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week...

Hope to see you again soon!
