Cuttlebug Be Inspired #18

I made this card for the Cuttlebug Be Inspired #18. It's a shape card. Now, I know this doesn't exactly fit what they were talking about, but when I saw the challenge, I immediately thought of this CB embossing folder. I embossed the front of the card, colored it with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol and cut out around the grass. I made the bird a Red-winged Blackbird because they are all over in my back yard right now! I sponged the inside of the card with VersaMagic Sea Breeze and Sahara Sand and Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue. I had covered the space for the moon/sun? and then colored it with Marvy LePlume II Lemon Yellow. The Happy Birthday stamp is by Inkadinkado. I like the way it turned out. What do you think?

  1. I love this Cuttlebug folder and I think it fits the challenge because you cut out the outline of the bird and grass for the cover of the card. Very nicely done!
