Scrappy boat birthday & some great news!


Scrappy boat birthday
Originally uploaded by pajalu (Paula)

This card is for this weeks Cuttlebug Challenge, plus a friend's little boy is having a birthday today. This week's challenge was to make cards out of scraps, so that's exactly what I have done. I grabbed different coloured off cuts of bazzil & ran them through my c/bug. I had some stickers left over from other projects as well. I thought the D'vine swirl made great waves for this boat. I cut around the top of the blue to make the waves more realistic & then kindyglitzed them. I then chalked the Happy Birthday so it would stand out better & used Twinkling H2O's on the cake. Finally I ran the orange bazzil through the mosaic folder just for some more texture & then cut down a black card base & put it all together.

I have found out some wonderful news as well. I am going to have my froggy card on the Cuttlebug website on the 18th of March. I can't believe it!!! I had to read the comment more than once before it actually sank in. I thought my frogs where special (they now have pride of place on my bookshelf) but this is a lovely bonus. So thank you so much to the lovely people at Cuttlebug Challenges. You guys ROCK!!!
