Cuttlebug be inspired 45 shaped cards

I'm a bit late posting today I have had to drive all over the tiny town of Pike New York to find wi-fi this morning...if you have ever been to pike you will surely understand :)

I love the templates over at paper Popsicles they are our sponsors this week and WOW are shaped cards fun , there are so many ways to create each and every one!! be sure to check out all the samples from the DT at cuttlebug challenge blog this week there are so many gorgeous cards to inspire and delight you! I had a lot of fun designing this bejeweled bee, I wanted to make it less cartoon like and more like the broaches my great Aunt Eva would wear she had all sorts of animals in every jewel you can imagine and sometimes my sister and I would be lucky enough to get to wear one while we played dress up!
I used the new herringbone folder to add texture to the bees stripes, the coredinations paper is perfect for the cuttlebug folders, The pretty swirled wings were made with the sizzix swirl die run through my bug, I added a little stitching and a greeting inside to complete this card with style.
let me know what you think and dont forget to visit for lots of ways to use your cuttlebug, big shot or any die cut system!
