And now onto the samples from the Design Team!

Our Guest Designer for January is Ruby and she has made this stunning easel card and used the digi image from Back To Nature along with the sentiment and flower. A bit of embossing and it totally transforms the card!

Kris: For this sketch with color challenge I've used the red and orange for accent colors. The black harlequin paper is from Jingle Jangle, the butterfly from Candy Doodles, and the stacked flower from Back to Nature (just goes to show how you can put together elements from lots of different CD's). I have a close up of the flower so you can see the dimension with all 7 layers (easy as pie to print the flowers on colored card stock and cut out).

Ruth: I've used the stackie flowers from Back to Nature and have layered the biggest one. The petals have been curled to give some definition. Added buttons in the centre of the flowers and then curled some wire. Doodled around the edges of the card and tied some black organza ribbon across the front to finish it off!

Lou: I know I always seem to be using these papers but do lurve the Picnic Brights collection from the "Back To Nature" CD. The gift box was made to house my baby sisters birthday present, so it had to be girly but modern(ish)! Embellished with spira flowers; stamped with flourish design from Daisy Doodles stamps; wire and gems as added bling!

Brenda: Back To Nature cd, image coloured with Copics and panel Cuttlebug daisies folder plus a bit of glitter.

Kerry: I turned the sketch around and coloured Polly with brushmarkers and used papers from Candy Doodles.

Kate: I have used Sugar Birdies and Candy Doodles cd's for my little birthday card. I have coloured Polly in with Promarkers 'cos I love 'em !

Claire - I have used a right mix of bits and bobs from the Cd's - just goes to show they really do all work well together. Candy doodles, Back to Nature and Jingle Jangles have all been used with some Sakura and a bit of added doodling!

Fliss: Everything's coming up daisies with my take on this sketch. I used the pretty daisy paper from the new Love and Cherish cd combined with the flower stackies from the Back to Nature cd. I've done lots of layering using red and orange card embossed with the Cuttlebug Bloom Dots, scallop scissors and a daisy corner punch.

Nettie: I really enjoyed making this one. I have used the Not For Girls cd for this card. I really love these cool birds and I coloured mine in with my Promarkers. I have just the person in mind to send it to!!

Dolly: All papers and elements from the Sugar Birdies CD. Added some hand stitching to the squares of paper on the base card to create a patchwork effect and glossy accents to Lulu the ladybug to make her shine!

Krista I used the Cd Back to Nature. I decided that a barn would go great with these darling animals. I colored the farm animals with my copics. These stamps are awesome to color.

Good luck and we can't wait to see what you create! Deadline is Sunday 31 January at 12noon GMT!
