The Cutting Edge/Virginia's View/Paper Smooches Sparks

G'day bloggers!

How's your Thursday going?

I've kind of been against the clock for this next card. I've had my eye on the new Cutting Edge Challenge for a few days and suddenly realised that Mr Linky closes in about 2 hours. So here's the gorgeous inspiration pic and my card, together with the inspiration pic for the Virginia's View die cut challenge:

I absolutely love the Cutting Edge inspiration card and was very tempted to copy it completely but I guess that's just not the idea of a challenge is it? So I sprayed some watercolour paper with some mists and ink, added a light dusting of black glimmer mist  and cut some flowers using a Paper Smooches flower die. The background die is a file from Waltzingmouse, the flourish is a Silhouette cut and it's all been put on a Nestie classic rectangle.  I'm really enjoying seeing what people are doing for this challenge as I don't make use of my Cameo anywhere near as much as I should. There's some amazing projects out there.

Over at Paper Smooches Sparks  there's an Anything goes challenge so since I've used their stand alone flowers dies I'm entering my card over there too.  You can find the die I used here at the Paper Smooches shop:

Anyway, thanks for popping by and taking a peek!
