Be Inspired # 27

The cuttlebug challenge this week was inspired by the upcoming tax deadline, to use numbers.

So I thought awhile then remembered this make and take offered by In A Pinch at Scrapfest this weekend.

I bought the stamp so decided to use this little calendar as the numbers on my card. I also used some new Coredinations Chocolate Box paper embossed with swirls then sanded to allow the turquoise to show through.

Then I added some Pink Paisley paper, a chipboard frame glittered with Martha glitter in Feldspar and popped up a couple of flowers.

The calendar was also stamped on Pink Paisley paper using chocolate brown ink. I envision this card as either a birthday card or a save the date card.

I think its one of my most favourite cards that I've ever made!

Speaking of Scrapfest, it was a terrific gathering of local(and some not so local)scrapbook related stores. Each store offered their own wonderful and unique products.

Here's a sampling of my purchases!

I'll be using them on some cards soon!

it's exquisite!! I love the glitter frame and how it's off-kilter to frame the calendar!
I bought a calendar set from CTMH awhile back and you've inspired me to dig it out and use it!!
