Cuttlebug Challenge #20

This week's Cuttlebug Challenge is a sketch challenge and it was such a fabulous sketch that there was no way I was going to forget to do it. I love how it came out and I am staring at while I am typing. I know, I know, I am quite the multi-tasker. hee hee. I fussy cut the flowers because I love to do that and used pop dots for dimension.

pp: Fancy Pants Simplicity - Shape; Dream Street Hugs n kisses "airmail" and "hugs"; Love Elie Claire Corsage, Michael's Kraft; Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, Colorbox in, Prima Say it in Chrystals, Sentiment - The paper co flowers and Frills rub on, Stickles - Stardust; unknown ribbon
I was also asked to make 25 Earth Day cards for an order. These will be my first cards to be sold in a store! It is a spa and it is and organic place, so she wanted something natural. Here is the first card I made and I'm sure most of them will be similar. They'r going to have to be or else I'll never finish them!

Cuttlebug swiss dots
