Hello girls! Are you having a terrific day?!  Since it's Wednesday, there are a handful of challenges I am highlighting today.

Cuttlebug Challenge - Popups
The Diedrich Dare - sketch by Jack below
Flutterby Wednesday - use blue,green, white - oops! I did use butterflies, but the wrong colors! If you play along, be sure to link your direct blog POST. Danni's trying a new link system this week too.

I love this sketch and took some liberty to simplify it a little by eliminating a layer and using the fruits at the bottom of my image for the row of buttons in the sketch.

Pretty simple construction. I used some Coredinations cardstock for the coral layer and just distressed the edges. And that ribbon. Oh it's sooooo luxorious. It's the nicest ribbon I've ever owned. My fellow Daredevil Rebecca ordered some months and months ago; I shared some of the yardage with her of some skinnier ribbon and just a little of this. It's so nice I've been hoarding it but finally convinced myself to just use it. There is always more to get should i need it, right?

And then the popup on the inside is using the spiral popup method. This is the first popup I've created using this method. I left it off to the side so there would be plenty of room to write a message.

Take a spin over to the Diedrich Dare blog to see the featured team member this week. And check out the rest of the team members too! We have a new Daredevil this week - please be sure to visit Krista Vantol and welcome her to the team!

And be sure to visit the Cuttlebug Challenge blog too to see all the inspiration over there as well.

I hope you'll play along with us this week!

Super card, Cassie. I really love it. I couldn't see from your post where the image is from. Is it a stamp or a vintage print image? It's such a lovely saying and beautifully done. That ribbon sure is yummy too! TFS!!

Rebecca Ednie said...

OOH, you finally used the silk ribbon and it looks gorgeous! May Arts has some lovely and probably cheaper linen ribbon with a similar feel. I play their challenges and have accumuated tons of yards of FREE ribbon! one of my prizes was 3 WHOLE SPOOLS so if you still want to do that card kit i emailed you about, I can send you some more! ANd it colours beautifuly with Copics. I love the embossing on your card. Beautiful!
