Cuttlebug Challenge #23


I can't believe it's Wednesday again- where has the time gone to- the weeks are just flying by and we are at challenge 23 already

The challenge this week is to use punches in unusual ways

I found this challenge quite tricky but had an idea in my head that started life as a rabbit and somehow ended up more like a bear or a dog!

I used blue and white spotty card to creat the card blank and punched the edges with fiskars punch and created a punched strip in core card and used the swiss dots folder.

I attached ribbon and card candy and a congratualtions topper and then my little "dog" which was created using a circle punch and a small oval punch and again used the swiss dots folder on this

Looking forward to visiting your blogs to see what you create using your punches
We are sponsored this week by Shealynn Benner who creates wonderful camera straps and the winner will receive one with runners up receiving sizzix dies
So what are you waiting for.... get those punches out
