MY CARD ENTRY FOR THE CUTTLEBUG "INSPIRED" CHALLENGE

Happy day, everyone!  I hope all my wonderful blogging family is doing well and happily crafting!

Today I'd like to share a card I made for the Cuttlebug "Inspired By An Advertisement" Challenge at http://thecuttlebugspot.blogspot.com/.

Added Note:  This card also qualifies for the "Fabulous Flowers" challenge at http://toptiptuesday.blogspot.com/, so I'm entering it there too!!!  YEA!!!  What fun!
 
I was a bit disappointed in that we don't have magazines and/or catalogs (other than my craft books) around the house, so I had to use a junk mail furniture store ad that was delivered in the mail today; the inspiration came from the wallpaper used in the background on one of the ad photos for the furniture.  It's not what I would have preferred but it was the ad I could put my hands on at the moment.  Here's my card:


Of course I used my Cuttlebug for the all the embossed areas, made a matching flower, added some beads, a bow and -- you know me -- Stickles!

Well, there are a few other challenges I'd like to enter, so I'm off...

I'll be seeing you!
