DCRus Tuesday Challenge Day


Happy Tuesday, you sweet visitors!...today is challenge day at Die Cuts R Us and I am so pleased to present my Monogram Card.  We were to design a project to feature a  Monogram and I selected the beautiful font from Cricut Storybook ...sold right here at DCRU.  The card base is from Wild Card which is one of my favs....the card is cut at 5 inches, and I ran the base through the Cuttlebug Embossing folders. The white mount squares are Nesties in the square circle and oval, also Cuttlebugged. (I love that word...)  I added some white dots with my acrylic paint, and a lovely jewel to the initial C. I put on a pretty ribbon and a tulip die cut from Storybook.  Since my initial is C, perhaps I will use this card to send to some sweet friend, or it could end up in the trays of the other 10,000 cards that may end up on Etsy someday.  Please visit the designer's  blog here to see the darling cards, and you should leave your card as well on Mr. Linky.  Great contest going on!

Beautiful card, I love the detail the swiss dots add to the Nestie. I also noticed the detail in the tulip by using a patterned paper in the Cricut. You are so talented, thanks for sharing.
