Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge 39: Whooo!

It's Wednesday again and that means more sneak peeks at one of the new embossing folders that Provo Craft is releasing for the Cuttlebug at CHA! The design team at Cuttlebug Challenges will be creating cards, layouts and projects all month long! Be sure to visit there often so as not to miss anything! There are several places you can preorder the folders online and HSN is having a pre-sale too on July 9th!

We at Cuttlebug Challenge are wanting to make it even easier for you to participate each week so you'll see several elements at play in the challenges. You can use all the elements like the team or just the ones that work for you! Our goal is that you'll Be Inspired to create something and share it with us! I've found so many wonderful new blogs because you link up your creations!

This week the team was asked to use 3 colors: a bright orange, turquoise and a celery green along with the new OWL folder coming out. Danni even suggested that we include some sort of nature --- or non-scrapping item in our project. (I missed that one)



I think this folder looks great just embossed in white and was tempted to do something along those lines. But the bright colors we were given just screamed to be used. I don't use brights very often and so I really wanted to step out of the box.
I embossed my white panel and then used a Versamarker pen to go over the raised portions. My image was then colored with my chalks and the applicator that came with the set. Some blue gems for the eyes add a bit of sparkle to the card. I also trimmed it down before mounting it to my base.
What do you think? Be sure to visit the Cuttlebug Challenge blog and see what the rest of the girls came up with. I've seen a few already this week and they are awesome!! You won't be disappointed by the detour!

Love this card with the new owl folder. I always forget about using my chalks with versamark. Maybe I'll try that later today. Thanks for the inspiration and thanks for visiting my blog!
