a cuttlebug challenge!

What a super fun challenge this was! The challenge was to try a new technique and it was to ink up your cuttlebug embossing folders and run your paper though. The result?...a inked up embossed sheet of cardstock to decorate your cards with! I loved this...it was so much fun I can't wait to try it again with some of my other folders! I used my new funky stripes folder {not sure it that's the actual name...that's what I call it though!} I inked up the folder with chocolate chip and then ran my vanilla paper through. I decided to run with the cuttlebug theme and use some of the new dies I bought for my kids and their new Cuttlekids! :) That thing is too stinkin' cute!! I found it at Walmart for $20! What a deal huh! Anyway...the flower is from that. I added some pink bling to jazz up the card and the "happiness" sentiment is a rub-on.
Have a fantabulous day...it is soooooooooooo gorgeous here today...I am headed outside with the kids to ride bikes and draw with the sidewalk with chalk. Thanks for coming by!!
