This card is for today's SCS Inspiration Challenge (IC168). Thanks, Stef for great inspiration! I combined a rug and a pillow for inspiration with my card. Here are the links. Pillow Rug

I am using Our Daily Bread Designs Keep My Lamp Burning set. I stamped the focal image in Pink Passion and the scripture in Adirondack Lettuce in keeping with the pillow colors. I also am using Raspberry Fizz and Spring Moss cardstock. To keep with the floral rug look, I am using Basic Gray, Perhaps (I think). Since the paper is on a white base instead of black like the rug, I opted for a 1" piece of grosgrain and a black layer behind image to bring out some black tones. I used a MS border punch to add some color contrast and detail. I finished with two white brads.

Some whine with that cheese, please!!!! This is DAY 10 without my cuttlebug. I have learned that I reach for my cb often only to realize that it is NOT there. I really do not think I made cards before I got it...lol!!! I decided that the cuttlebug is much like a dishwasher in that I can make cards without it just like I can have clean dishes, but the process is totally different. Maybe the dishwasher is NOT a good comparison. A more fitting one is hairstyling perhaps. I can roll my hair with a brush and a blow dryer, but using a curling iron or electric rollers makes the task entirely different. Okay, that analogy is NOT good, either.

It gets down to the fact that there are soooo many things I CANNOT do without the cuttlebug. Now, I realize this is one of many types of die cut and embossing machines on the market. Of course, it is the only one I have ever used or had. It has truly revolutionized the way I make cards....the embossing folders, die cuts, etc..... I have finished whining for now....lol!!!! Thanks for reading!!!! It is so nice to share!!!!
