Papertake Weekly Challenge - Thanks a Latte

I've been naughty...... Even though my birthday isn't until tomorrow, I've convinced Ali to let me have my Cuttlebug a little bit early! I knew I was going to love it but I mean, wow, isn't it great?! So far I've only got two embossing folders - Perfectly Paisley and Swiss Dots (of course!) - but I can see myself acquiring some more soon :o)
This is the first card that I have made with my new toy and I'm afraid that it looks far better in the flesh than it unfortunately does in this picture! As it is a thank you card, it is also going to be my entry for this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge.

The image is a RAK from Dawn, one of my SBS sisters. I think it might be a Stampin' Up stamp, but please don't quote me on that! I've coloured the birdie with watercolour pencils and highlighted the flower with an adhesive gem. The card stock is Bazzill Bling and I've used my new Fiskars 'Cloud' scissiors to cut the scalloped edges. I finished the card with ribbon and some brads.

Just before I sign off, sorry I've not been about too much this week but I've been tied up making the gifts for our SBS Secret Sister Swap. Although I am enjoying doing something different, I never realised that it would be so time consuming! Once I've finished everything, posted it all and had confirmation that my secret sister has received it, I will share some pics with you but I don't want to do so yet as I don't want to spoil the surprise for her!

Hope everyone is well,
Pin It
