Cuttlebug and Colour Combo Challenges

I have just finished this card and couldn't wait until Monday to share. So very quickly this is what I have done. I have used the challenge from over at Cuttlebug Challenges #15 we had a sketch to use. I also used the Colour Combination Challenge #202 from Splitcoast Stampers.

I used SU Old Olive as the base card, edged with clear versa mark, stamped along the bottom with flourishes (SU Priceless) in clear versa mark. I attached a variety of circles, silver shim, SU Regal Rose, SU Bravo Burgandy, also used Kaiser Craft Rub-ons on some pieces of the shim. I used the cuttlebug embossing folders - Forest Branches, Stylized Flowers, and Swiss Dots. Added buttons and a bit of bling. The dream cirlce I ran through the cuttlebug with stylized flowers and then again on top of the folder to flatten it out. The pink flower is a retro flower paper punch.

I wasn't entirely happy with the card before so I have cut the front off the card and adhered it to the front of a black card so now we have a portrait view. Also added some silver dots around the greeting.

  4. Great take on the sketch, love the colours you've used and the detail of the background. I think backing it onto black card makes it stand out a lot more. Thanks for taking part this week!
