Cuttlebug Challenge #51

This is the last in the series of challenges I have been playing along with this last month over at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog This week (Challenge #51) was to make a Thank You card for the party that has been the subject of all the challenges all month long to celebrate the blogs 1st Birthday. I just love this little guy munching on a cupcake after everyone has gone home. A Mo's Digital Pencil Image. I used a Cuttlebug embossing strip for the edges of the card and then Basic grey paper. The bow is made from pull ribbon and it is so nice and easy to use. This is the inside of the card, and I love the Cuttlebug embossing folder I used on the background paper. And Thank You to Cuttlebug Challenge Blog for hosting a great Birthday Challenge all month long. Happy Birthday to you and it will be fun to follow along for the next year.

I made this yesterday and used My Minds Eye papers from last season. I stamped the snowflakes and embossed with clear and then sponged on blue green and brown ink. I do lve this technique. Added some rhinestones and some little glitter flakes. I saw this quote yesterday morning and knew the perfect image for it. This is another of Mo's Digital Pencil
I used my new Copics pens to color most of this, Woo Hoo I just love those things and can't wait to get more.
And the inside... see, perfect.

When we were all young my parents took us on camping trips all the time. I loved it. I still love it. Well I haven't been in a few years but I would love it. I used digital papers and elements for this layout. I just printed the Marks Paper Co. Digital Kit elements and papers onto cotten linen paper that I got from an office supply store. I used Stickles and rhinestones and ribbons to pull it all together. I used a cuttlebug die to cut the paper flowers and then piled them up and added a rhinestone. For the large flower I colored recycled silk flowers with a glitter pen.

I love buttons. I have a bunch and I am always on the look out for more. I piled up 3 for each and glued them to a piece of PP. Doesn't my big sis Martha look cool in her capries and white blouse? We Thoms know how to camp. I used eyelash ribbon, velvet rick rack, and some paper ribbon.

I used some really cool rhinestones that I picked up at the Dollar store, This is also a good shot of the Flourish that I cut using the Sizzix die that I bought last week. I embossed the back side of the flower to give it a little more dimension.

Have a great week everyone.
