CBCC #29- Inspired By Nature and Sweet n' Sassy!

Welcome to our first ever SPONSORED CBCCChallenge!
This weeks challenge is to be inspired by nature and is sponsored by Sweet n' Sassy Stamps! What does that mean? Well it means you need to make something inspired by nature and then link it back to Courtney's blog. And this weeks winner gets a free digital stamp image from Sweet n' Sassy! How cool is that?!

We chicks were all given this Luna Moth image drawn by the fabulous Chris Dickinson to work with this week(Thanks Korin!). You might be asking, what is so great about these digital images? Lots of things! You can resize them, you can print them as many times as you need/want and best of all? So easy on the bank account!

I have a confession. I'm slightly addicted to the digital images. I love regular stamping, don't get me wrong. But there is something satisfying for me to be able to print them in different sizes. And print them over and over again. Without trying to find my favorite ink pad on my messy desk. :)

Here's my card. I shrunk the image down a bit, then printed, colored and finished up the card.
I printed out the moth twice(ok, actually like 6 times. I need to pay better attention to my printer settings!) so I could layer it. And it's hard to see, but I went over the image with my clear Spica Glitter Pen so it's all sparkly. The sentiment is from PTI and the patterned paper is Basic Grey- Sultry(? I think?). The ruffled green ribbon is by Making Memories and it's so yummy! And in real life, the button actually does match. I don't know why it's so bright in this pic.

Now it's your turn! Go find some nature and be inspired by it, make a card or project, link it on Courtney's blog and be sure to use keyword CBCC29 if you upload to SCS or PCP. And then cross your fingers and you just might win yourself an awesome digital image! Be sure to check out what the other chicks have done too(links on my sidebar) for more inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Pin It!
