Another Diva Day and some Big Shot Magic!!

I'm so excited to show you my card today! It came together fairly easily using the DCBD sketch, a color challenge, and some trash! That's right-I got to do something EXTRA fun with my Big Shot using trash! See that clear butterfly? No I didn't BUY that... I MADE it! It was tough to photograph because of the shadow it cast, but the clear stiff plastic I used was actually packaging for a new cheese slicer!! I took before and during photos because I just knew I could do something with that stuff!

Here is the new cheese slicer on its clear packaging! What a bonus, although kind of wasteful if it doesn't get reused somehow... and I'm not one to be wasteful!

And here is a picture of it just after I ran it through my Big Shot with the Beautiful Butterflies Die. Look how much I have left!! I can do so much more...
The color scheme I used is Kiwi Kiss, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun and Whisper White. This was the color challenge over on SCS yesterday... well, almost. It suggested Only Orange, but come on, I just got these Pumpkin and Summer corduroy buttons yesterday and HAD to use them. Besides Pumpkin is just more deserving than Only Orange! ;)

Anyway, hope you like it! I know just who I'm going to send it to.
