CREATIVE SISTERS CHALLENGE MONDAY #2 AND A WINNER FOR CHALLENGE #1

Welcome to the Creative Sisters Challenge Monday #2!  My sister, Linda over at Linda's Creativity is hosting this challenge.  Her challenge requires embossing!  For my project, I created a series of note cards using the cuttlebug embossing folders that I have. 


This "Feel Better Soon Card" is 4 3/4" x 6 1/2".  I used Create a Critter - the sun and cut it at 2".  Peachy Keen everyday faces for the face.  Martha Steward Corner Punch and a cuttlebug embossing folder for that flowered background that I sponged in Brown.

This card was sooooo much fun.  I used my new Best of Pixar cartridge and made this cut of Dory at 3". The card is 4 3/4" x 6 1/2".  I used the cuttlebug "bubble" embossing folder and then sponged blue on the bubbles.  I made a few bubbles "pop" by adding some rhinestones to them...Of course, Dory was screaming for some stickles!!


This is a thank you card using the same embossing folder but without any sponging.  I used the Give A Hoot cartridge on this one and made it simple. The card is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4 "and the owl was cut at 2 1/2" I added a brad in the corner and some ribbon - Just a simple card.

This is my favorite of them all!  I used Life's A Party Cartridge for this adorable lion, cut at 2 1/2 inches.  The card measures 4" x 7".  I used a wood like cuttlebug embossing folder on the blue layer and then added some bling and some ribbon and a sentiment.  Just a real fun card!
