Cuttlebug Challenge #20


Wow can't believe it's a week since the last challenge and this week there is a super sketch by guest designer Valerie Salmon


This is my take on the sketch


I drew round a template to shape my card


The papers are by K & Co and the ribbons I bought from craft at Home


I used three different flowers two of which i embossed using the swiss dots folder and the other with the tiny bubbles and added the sentiment Happy Birthday


Hope you can join in the fun and look forward to seeing what you create with the sketch

Very pretty card...I love the shape of it! And I love that you didn't do a square shape like the sketch...I need to remind myself that I don't always need to take sketches so literally! Great job this week!
