Cutting Edge Challenge #5

**Scroll down for my Reverse Confetti Color Challenge........the Color Challenge is still up and we would love to see your take on the colors this month!**

It's time to share the next Cutting Edge Challenge!  We have another beautiful inspiration project, this one done by Melania Deasy.  I can’t wait for you all to play along, so let’s get to it, shall we?!

Okay, here’s the gig!  Let yourself be inspired by Melania's card, and create a card that includes die cutting (all forms accepted).  There’s so much about this project to be inspired by, right?!  Here’s what I created:


I was inspired by Melania's card in several ways:  the colors, the layout, and the tiny gray dots.  I rotated my card and added a Stitched Mats: Rectangles layer over some gray polka dot paper.  I die cut the Smile word die with several colored layers, glued them together, and mounted on my card.  I diecut several butterflies from the Stitched Butterfly Die Set and scattered them on my card.  The last detail was to add those fun gray dots with my T4 Copic!!!

We’d love to have you play along with us! If you click on through to The Cutting Edge Challenge Blog, you’ll find lots of information, including:
  • The Winner of the last challenge, as well as the Top 3, are being announced;

The challenge closes on Thursday, July 31, 2014 at 9:00 AM EDT, so what are you waiting for?!  You can find everything you need to play along HERE.  We can’t wait to see what you create!!

Oh Amy! This is just about the sweetest card ever!! Love the teeny tiny gray polka dots, and the subtle stripes on the "smile." Darling little butterflies, vibrant colors, and a wonderful design. This is really a special one. LOVE this. Bev
