Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge 41: Anything But A Card

Good morning!! It's Wednesday and time for another terrific challenge by the Cuttlebug Challenge design team. It's been so much fun this month Counting Down to CHA and designing with the new embossing folders from Provo Craft. I'm incredibly thankful for the opportunity to create with them. I hope you've been enjoying all the inspiration too!

This week we were asked to use the new Victoria folder (which is one of my favorites!) and to create anything we wanted as long as it wasn't a card! Oh the possibilities!

I picked up these plant markers last year in the Target $pot, not sure why as I am not really a gardening kinda gal but I thought they were cool!

Here's how I altered them:

Here's a close-up shot:
I just wrapped some embossed paper around the metal plate, added some letter stickers and some buttons, gems and butterflies as decoration!

What's growing in my imaginary garden? All the things I think it would be lovely to have:
beans, peas, carrots, squash and rhubarb*.
*Don't knock it until you've tried it. I always thought rhubarb was icky (although I'm not sure what I based that on) until several summers ago when hubby and I traveled up north with his mom and visited family. His aunt had this Rhubarb Crisp that was DIVINE!! It's a tart taste and oh so yummy!
Be sure to visit the Cuttlebug Challenge blog and see what the rest of the team came up with. I've had some sneak peeks and they are stunning, as always!!

Love this idea!! Such pretty markers..

Tricia said...

cute idea. You should spray them with a waterresistant/repellent so you can leave them out. They are super cute!

I love these ... and your imaginary garden.

I made a rubarb recipe one time (I think it was from Rachael Ray). It was rubarb cooked with sugar and dried cherries and then your eat it with pork chops. It was soooo good.

My neighbor has rubarb plant that we are going to transplant into my yard next year. Yummy!

Blessings,
Christine

Love these Cassie! I think I just might have to try this out but figure out a way to make them weather resistant so I can leave them in my gardens. I actually have some of those plant markers too! Thanks for the inspiration!

I love thos plant markers. What are you going to do with them? If you cut them short, they might look cute in cupcakes as placecards.
