Cuttlebug Be Inspired #18

This is becoming a Saturday habit... two posts in one day. Cuttlebug Be Inspired #18 asked us to create a card in a different shape. Wasn't sure what to do so I took a square card and made it into an octagon. I'm not sure why, but I'm not very happy with this card. I guess that happens every now and then.

The Sarah Kay image is my friend Barb's which I had stamped on New Year's Eve. I embossed the blue card stock with Swiss dots, as well as the punched flowers (unfortunately, after putting glitter glue on the flowers, the dots don't show up very well). The DP and the rub-on are Melissa Francis. I used Prismacolor colored pencils (with gamsol), lace from Hobby Lobby, ribbon from Michaels, Stickles Diamond glitter glue, Hero Arts pearls and EK Success punches.

Done for the day. Thanks for taking the time to look.

Cheers, Judi

Thank you for playing with us at Cuttlebug Challenge Blog
I love the background you created for this card: the lace, the floral paper, the purple embossed paper, the little flowers. All these are very appealing to me as they can be described in one of my fave words: ELEGANT.
