The Cutting Edge Challenge #8

It's time to share the next Cutting Edge Challenge!  We have another inspiration project, this one done by me! The team has interpreted it so many different ways. 

 We've decide to extend the playing time. Our challenges will now take place every other week so that our players will have more time to participate. We hope you'll play along!

Here's the inspiration!

 Let yourself be inspired by my card, and create a card that includes die cutting (all forms accepted).    Here’s what I created:

It was kind of different but fun CASing my own card! The sentiment is from WPlus9 and below is a list of the dies I used.

Rounded Mat- Spellbinders
Doilies- My Favorite Things
Leafy branches- Memory Box 
Tiny leaves- Impression Obsession
Flowers- Memory Box

We’d love to have you play along with us! If you click on through to The Cutting Edge Challenge Blog, you’ll find lots of information, including:
  • The Winner of the last challenge, as well as the Top 3, are being announced;
  • The Cutting Edge Design Team is sharing their samples for the challenge, and they are pretty fabulous;
  • The InLinkz link-up tool for you to link up YOUR project!

The challenge closes on Thursday, August 30th at 9:00am EDT, so what are you waiting for?!  You can find everything you need to play along HERE.  We can’t wait to see what you create!!

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
