CAS(E) this Sketch


I know you are not going to believe this but I made a card for no special reason 
except to try out my new Silhouette Cameo machine!
I have so much to learn but oh my what fun it is!
Christmas has come early to our home.

I was surfing yesterday and found this challenge site through the creator Jackie Rowell's blog. 
I loved the card Jackie created and went to take a look at CAS(E) this Design   where
they are into challenge #9 and this great sketch!


Love that they are very flexible with the layout...as long as they can see 
the bones of their original design.
You have until noon on Tuesday to get a card in
for the last challenge this year and then they will 
be on break until January 10th....so hurry on over and
take a look around.

Now as for my design....I used the 3-D flower from
the Silhouette Online store, sizing 3 different flowers
and cutting them with some unknown thin
patterned paper that I have had forever....
it may be some of the first paper I purchased
years and years ago but I still love
the polka dot red!
I used my Big Shot and foliage dies from 
Spellbinders, added different Making Memories 
yellow brads and a fun Smile sentiment from 
a Studio G 1.00 pack.
While experimenting, I also cut out this border
strip with my Cameo and placed it on 
the inside of my card.


I think this will be a great card to send a friend for no special
reason, don't you.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you are having a great week.
hugs.....

Patti,
I've been thinking about getting one. I decided to wait for the price to come down a bit. I purchased the very first Circut when I was scrapbooking and paid full price for it then I found stamping and never use it. Plus the cartridges are so expensive. I know the Silhouette doesn't use cartridges, but I bet my computer is too old. LOL I'm sure glad your enjoying it. Have a wonderful holiday.
