Cuttlebug Be Inspired #40 - Herringbone Folder

I am thrilled to introduce the new Herringbone Folder from Provo Craft.

This is part of the Countdoun for CHA we are hosting at Cuttlebug Challenge Blog.
You can win some of these folders and more by participating in all 4 Be Inspired challenges of July.

This week we have a sketch from Mlamarredesigns to work with.

You can see more cards with this sketch and participate in the challenge here

I must admit that when I got the package with the new folders they are releasing at CHA this autumn, the Herringbone was not the first I fell in love with.

However, I think I changed my mind after starting to think of ideas and the beach theme was among the first that came in my mind.

Here is my card:

Now you all know I love to design wedding invitations. Can you imagine the possibilities with this embossing folder and the starfish from Anita's Stamps?

By the way, the starfish stamp is a gift from my friend Angela whose b-day was yesterday, so you probably could hop to her blog and say happy birthday. Happy birthday, Angie!

You have already "sold" me on this folder, Meda!
I'll be visiting CHA in about 2 weeks ... and will finally see this in person. I surely would love to see you there as well. Maybe "someday", sweet lady!

GOrgeous! I love the soft white & what a great idea to use the shells. They're stunning! Makes me want to hit the beach and root around for embellishments. ;O)
