This to That Tuesday Challenge #2~ The Digi Bistro

Hi everyone!
I am super excited to share my very first project as The Digi Bistro's DT member.

This weeks This to That Tuesday Challenge was to make a Side Step card using one of Cher's super adorable SVG file.
And for the Prize~~ we will be giving away three gift certificates to three lucky winners. The winners will receive gift certificates in the following amounts
1st Prize – $15,
2nd Prize - $10,
and the
3rd Prize $5.
You’ll have a chance to take one of these gift certificates and use it at The Digi Bistro store to purchase any SVG set of your choice.

I chose to make my side step with the Simply Tweet file.
I used a tutorial I found over at Splitcoaststampers and
here is my card!
Cher's files are just LOADED with so many super cute cuts!!
I used lots of scrap paper for my cuts (still trying to unload the mass amount I have)
All my cuts were then inked around the edges using Pigment ink in a variety of matching colors.
I used 2 brads for the sentiment, googly eyes for the birds and pearls for the flowers.
I'm not sure the picture shows this but I painted the butterflies with Creative Inspirations Paint in Winter Frost. This paint adds such a beautiful sparkle to the butterflies.
This was such a fun card to make and I hope you will play along!
Now, I guess you'll want to know how you can become one of our lucky winners? It’s easy – create a step card just like I have done. Remember you must play along to win! You can use your cricut cartridges or SVGs you may already have and then add your card to the link over at Cher's Studio. There you will find the other DT's side step cards for even more inspiration! They are amazing so hop on over, get crafty and  post your cards for entry. The contest will end Monday 8/29/11 midnight, CST and Cher will announce the winners on Wednesday August, 31st.

    I went back and looked at all your recents projects and they are just fabulous Jessica. I apologize for not stopping by much lately. My life is crazy right now helping my daughter with the purchase of her home. Had 4 days to paint the outside of her house and 2 car garage before the appraisers came. So, no crafting time for me right now. Miss all you guys! Be back soon!
