From Courtney's Closet Challenge Pink Lace

Isn't she spiffy? Here is Libby's sweet little Courtney in her fancy party dress!
Check out Libby's From Courtney's Closet Challenge.

I loved working with vellum on this card...have not used it much so it was a treat to dig it out (oooh I only had one piece YIKES!) and try out my new cuttlebug edge embossers on this card. Again, I used my cuttlebug folders and edgers, as well as my scorepal, and Stampin Up punches. This is more of a "tool/toy" card as there is no stamping here LOL!

What I noticed most in Courtney's picture this week, was her cute little "piggies". Aren't babies toes just so sweet? I know I am forever tweaking Cole's little toes and he looks up confused at me and wondering what that crazy "GWAMMA" is doing now! HA!

This gave me an excuse to use one of those little cuttlebug folders I just had to have. Aren't these baby feet sweet?

Just a note on the cuttlebug edge embossers. I had a heck of a time (esp with vellum) with it leaving a line on the cardstock. I tried being tricky with cutting pieces of paper the size of the folder and put on top(to keep roller away from cardstock), I tried only going just far enough to get the impression and not run the folder all the way through and in the end I found if I just threw my tan nestability embossing mat over the skinny little edger and carefully ran it through the folder, I didn't get any line...Viola!!! If anyone else comes up with a better/easier tip, I would love to hear it! I'm still experimenting...

Tools: Cuttlebug folders(swiss dots, baby feet, edge embosser), S-Up! circle punch and scallop punch, scorepal
