Lilyboo Bike Ride

I have a fun card and exciting news to share with you today!

I was at Splitcoast Stampers the other evening uploading cards to my gallery trying to get back into the habit.  In the forums section I noticed design team calls so I went to take a look.  One of my favorite companies, Cuddly Buddly was having a call so I thought "why not?!"  I sent a quick e mail to Kim and was surprised and thrilled to see in my e mail the next morning a note from Kim.  She wanted me to be one of her designers so here I am with my first Cuddly Buddly Lilyboo creation!  

To create a scene I used Lilyboo Bike Ride and Large Tree and merged them together.  I colored my scene with Copic markers V0000, V000, V01, V12, RV00, RV02, RV04, YG01, YG03, YG13, YG67, YG23, E000, E00, E11, E40, E41, E42, E43, E25, E29, E53, N1, N3, N5, B0000, B12, B14, T0, T3, T5, BG000, BG01, R20, YR20, YR21, YR24, Y21.  Trimmed it down to a size I could use on my card and rounded the corners with a We R Memory Keepers 1/8" Corner Chomper.  I re-sized and printed two sheets of digital paper from the Wee One's Blooming Digital Papers and built my card base.  As you can see from my card I didn't use both digital patterned papers but you'll see the other one in my next photo.  I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder on the Aqua panel for a little texture to go with those wonderful diagonal stripes.  My colored image is pretty big but I really wanted to use a sentiment so I picked "Across The Miles" from Round Greetings Mixed sentiment set. The sentiment is cut out with Spellbinders circles dies. 

Here's a picture of my card with the additional piece of patterned digi paper I printed.  I didn't want it to go to waste so I made an envelope liner so everything coordinates.  

I'm looking forward to designing Lilyboo cards for Cuddly Buddly.
I've wanted to play with more of these cute images but haven't seemed to have the time, I will now!

Did I mention earlier that the Large Tree digital image is a freebie at Cuddly Buddly right now?
