Cuttlebug Spot Challenge 23



I was in the process of making up some stitched Easter cards when I spotted this week's Cuttlebug Spot challenge which is "Celebrate Spring". Easter is a way of celebrating Spring isn't it? So I thought I would get out my "Bug" and see what I could do. I couldn't decide which I liked best so here are both of them. One is simply put through the machine using the Swiss Dots folder then happy easter stamped onto ribbon and placed along the bottom of the card. The other one I cut into an oval shape then mounted onto a slightly larger oval using gold mirri card. The background is a patterned card which I put throught the machine using the swirls folder, I then sanded the top lightly to give a slightly disressed look.
