Cuttlebug Be Inspired #14

This is a week of firsts for me. I joined my first challenge ever (Penny Black Saturday Challenge), which also meant it was the first time I joined PBSC. I then joined for the first time House Mouse Monday Challenge and today will be my first time joining the Cuttlebug challenge. I have loved seeing everyone's contributions to these challenges and am so glad I decided to take the plunge.

The Cuttlebug Be Inspired #14 challenge should have been very easy.... just pick your favorite embossing folder and use it on a card. I guess I own too many embossing folders because it was a very tough decision. I finally decided on Swiss Dots. It was the first embossing folder I ever bought (hmmmm, there's that "first" again) and it's really what made me decide I had to have a Cuttlebug!

Anyway, here's my card. The hummingbird is an "E-Z Rub-On Transfer" from Royal Langnickel ( I used a Fiskars border punch around the edge and the paper was from Hobby Lobby. And, of course, the Swiss Dots embossing folder.

Thanks for looking. I would love to hear from you.
Cheers, Judi

That is just fabulous - it all works so well together. I love the image and everything about the card.

I too found it hard to choose my favourite folder and Swiss Dots has to be pretty near the top of anyone's list. Thank you for joining in - hope it will be the start of many more cards.
