The Cuttlebug Spot -So Charming

The challenge this week for The Cuttlebug Spot is to use charms on your project.  I have been wanting to make a white on white card for a long time.  I almost got there this time, but I couldn't resist adding a lilac mat.  It is still mostly white and I am very happy with how it turned out.  I just wish I could have taken a photo of it to show how pretty it really is.

Last week Beate posted on her blog how to make a frame with nestaibilities and I knew I had to try it.  It is pretty easy and I will definitely being making more of them.  I can't seem to get a link to the exact post on Beate's blog with the video, but you can find it at the bottom of  her 3/5/11 post.  It has been a very long day so I am keeping this a super short post.  I have the card details at the bottom of this post.  Make sure to check out the rest of the design teams gorgeous creations  on The Cuttlebug Spot.  Thank you for stopping by.
