Be Inspired #45

I found a blog that is all inspiring. It is cuttlebug challenge. Currently they are running this challenge to make any shape cards using or not using the cuttlebug. Talk about timing I just finished cards that I made for my daughter's 18th birthday party. They are suppose to look like a swimming pool and I also used green for the background hoping it would look like the lawn. (Just in case you have no idea what it is suppose to be)LOL It is for a pool party/backyard BBQ. We decided we did not want to go full out LUAU but did a Tropical BBQ you know everything summer, pool, sand, water balloons, water guns, silly string, tropical flowers HOT colors, flip flops beach towels, food will all be fruity or BBQ. (except for hot dogs)
The cards turned out ok for doing them at the last minute and using scraps to make the cards to use up things we have. We decided we need to "make the most" of what we have. All of them were a little different in color etc. The photos are not very good quality they look much better than the picture shows. I used vellum for a water look with a cricut cut out layered between with a colored strip of vellum that says "Let's make a splash As we celebrate" Not my best but definitely fun to make. and a very different "shape" I hope you enjoy and come back soon for more.
