Be Inspired #74

Wahoo! Today is Wednesday and that means it is time for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog Be Inspired Challenge. We are up to number 74! and our challenge this week was to alter/embellish envelopes. I ran my Maya Road envelopes right through my cuttlebug! So, easy. Then I embellished them with some Jillibean Soup products following a Mother's Day theme. I thought these would work great as seed packets.


Here is a close up of the Card. I embossed the flowers and use myStampBOX sentiment stamp and some Glossy Accents to enhance those fun polkas on the flower.


Some Glimmer Mist {Wheatfields--love this color!}


I used some glossy accents to highlight May 9th, Mother's day...




Thanks so much for stopping by today!
