Cuttlebug Be Inspired #14

And for my second challenge today (and there's no way I'm going to keep this up!) I've entered the Cuttlebug Be Inspired challenge to make a card with your favourite folder.

Well my favourite, for today at least, is Texture and this is what I did with it.

The base is a pale green DL card and at the top I added some K & Co paper which I thought was ideal as the pattern is very similar to the Texture one and I liked the colours. I ran a piece of pink card through the Cuttlebug  and highlighted the embossing in Adirondack 'Lettuce'. Over the join I used a piece of 'Chatterbox' ribbon and finished the card off with embellishments from 'Laura Ashley'.

I think that's certainly enough challenges for today but who knows what tomorrow will bring?
