SheetLoad and Cuttlebug Intersite Challenge -Be Inspired #25



This is my card for Be Inspired #25 over the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog.

Our sponsor this week is Sheetload.. They gave each of the design team a pack of frosty and clear acetate cards to work with. I chose the frosty one.

This is something new we are doing an intersite challenge.. Meaning both sites have come together to bring you an excellent challenge.. please take a moment to visit them by clicking on the image below. Sheetload is owned by Alicia the creator of Shortcuts. If you have not seen sheetload I suggest you run there and download your free copy.




Sorry for the ugly photo. I have waited for the sun in vain.



I saw a stamp like this somewhere, but I don't have it so I took my pen and watercolors and tried to draw it. I'm quite happy with it.

Edited: Leslie Miller has just told me it was an image by Stamp Oasis and the samp can be bought at Rubbernecker Stamp Co.   Thank you Leslie.



This is the sketch we had to use. I had to simplify as usually, I did not want to cover the frosty acetate. I kind of like the contrast: FROST - FLOWERS.

Oh, my! Beautiful! It's amazing that you drew this, yourself! It's an image by Stamp Oasis. I have the stamp and used it recently on my blog. I purchased it at Rubbernecker Stamp Co. Gosh, if you can draw like this maybe you should be designing stamps! Fabulous!
