Swirl and shimmer

I'm a little behind the times with this whole Cuttlebug thing (as I seem to be with a lot of crafty things). I've only had it for a little over a year and only have a few embossing folders and Nestabilities for it. I just got the D'vine Swirls folder recently and I love it. It looks amazing with the A Muse Shimmer Couture paper so I've whipped up two swirly shimmer cards.

This one is for Curtain Call 51 and 2 Sketches 4 You 63. This is a lotta, lotta blue for me but I really like how this turned out.

I posted this one to SCS yesterday but really wanted to post it here today too. It's for Color Throwdown 114, SCS Sketch Challenge 302 and SCS Hope You Can Cling To 10 (inspired by things you see when you are walking).

If you are looking for some challenges, check out mine from Monday and the Color Dare from yesterday. Also, check out my November class schedule - I just updated it. There are a bunch of calendar classes as well as a charity crop.

Thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate it.
