Be Inspired #53 Color Challenge... My Debut as a Guest Designer

For this card, I printed out my Turkey from Seasons of Thanks, by Colleen Parry , four times, and colored each layer, putting him together with dimensional dots, so that he stands right out from the card. His "nest" is punched from the Martha Steward branch punch in our color challenge colors!!

For the background I chose black and ivory DCWV paper (again our challenge colors) and used the Martha Steward Doily edge punch, and punched each layer, with the last layer having room for the Cuttlebug Embossing with the "With Love" border folder. To add brilliant shine and texture I carefully touched the raised lettering with Versamark and heat embossed black MS embossing powder on the With Love and flourish. The strips are 2 inches wide. I start with the bottom strip hanging over the edge of my card and work on up to the top where I cut the last strip to be even with the fold of the card. Last, I tied a matching bow on the left, for just the right touch of color.

The inside sentiment was computer generated, matted, and adhered to the Halloween Sign Cuttlebug die.
Come on over to Cuttlebug Challenge and see my whole write up. I'm so excited!!!
