Now, for this week's Be Inspired Challenge at Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot
We were to create a card inspired by the Summer colors found in this photo:
AND this is the CARD I came up with:
I meant to make this a masculine - babyboy - card.... but its almost too foo-fooish now that I look back! LOL!! Oh well. Its still baby-ish... :) 
I entered this into today's SCS #F4A15 Challenge - to create a card for a boy. 

FOR ACHIEVING THIS Layered LOOK: You can follow the measurements that are included with the enclosed Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page insert sheets; It specifies these sizes (3.25x3.25in, 5x5in, and 6.75inx6.75 in, 8.5inx8.5in, 10.25inx10.25in, and 12inx12in). These sizes are meant for punching around the corners on square shaped measurements. BUT DON'T FEEL LIMITED to just those sizes..... I like to play around with the lining up of my punched designs to create NEW-additional layers with slightly different sizes, in varied lengths & widths. You can even try using the corner punch along to create new looks. The possibilities are endless. Its a trial and error thing but so much fun discovering new sizes and ways to use these fab MS PATP punches. Especially for me who loves to create with layers, layers, layers!  LOL  :)

Come play along & check out the Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot Design Team's amazing CREATIVITY HERE:   Simply design a card, layout, home decor project, altered item, or some other exciting creation, using your Cuttlebug products & these colors. Then link your project to the InLinkz found on the CBCB blog and you could be the lucky chosen winner of  5 NEW Cuttlebug Folders we're giving away!!!  HOW RAD IS THAT????  :)

Thanks for Looking & Happy Creating! :)
