Happy Birthday Cuttlebug Challenges!

Cuttlebug Challenges is celebrating their birthday all month, and you really need to pop on over and check it out! They have some amazing challenges and GREAT prizes you can win! This week DT member Danni, who is also on the Embellish DT with me is the host! And Barb from Embellish has kindly donated this week's prize! You so don't want to miss that!!! You can read about it HERE!

Danni's challenge is to create a card and bag for a birthday! This was perfect as it was my father-in-law's birthday on Monday so I had to make a card for him!

I just love the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird Collection! These papers are so bright and fun! Not colors I normally play with so getting out of my comfort zone can be scary but in the end is always so much fun! I tried to make this card manly (which is difficult for me) but I think I pulled it off pretty good. I stamped the trees with Momento Rich Cocoa and then clear embossed them for some shine! The edges of the labels 4 are decorated with cinnamon stickles. And I finally got time to play with my Spellbinders Ribbon Tags.
The finished inside of the card...with my new Studio G Birthday Stamp! I love the swirls on this one!
Then I made this cute bag to go along! It's a Lauren Meader Timeless Template! I have purchased many of her templates, but haven't gotten time to play with them yet. After playing with this one I can't wait to play with more of them! Lauren you are the bomb girl!!!

I was going to put my father-in-law's restaurant gift certificate in here until I showed my creation to my hubby who said it looked like a purse! Scratch that idea, I guess....so I kept it for somebody else! I did add Baby Breath Shimmerz Spritz to all of the papers here for an added sparkle! I love the look that this spray gives, it's so beautiful!

Love your card Kim, I know what you mean, I have a hard time making the masculine cards too! Yours turned out gorgeous, I love the Spellbinders ribbon tags, I haven't see anyone use them yet. Now I want them too! That's the trouble, just can't get enough of those Spellbinders! ~Diane DCRU DT

What beautiful creations Kim! I love the CC Early Bird line, isn't it amazing. I had to giggle about the "purse", sounds like something my Hubby would say:) I thought it was darling! And the stamped trees look perfect with the paper!
