Good morning all, I hope you are all enjoying the start of the weekend. 

I have some great news to share with you today and that is that I was invited to join the ladies at Silhouette Challenges as part of their design team and as you can see I said I very quick YES! My regulars will know just how much I love using my Silhouette Cameo and this will give me lots of chances to do things that perhaps I wouldn't normally do.

So onto the challenge which as read would of seen above is 'Print and Cut' which is one of the features that I love on the Silhouette. I have made two cards for you one using the traditional style of print and cut using a file from the Silhouette Store and another using print and cut with a digital stamp from my own library of images having been purchased from Sassy Cheryl's.

For this first card I used this subway art by Echo Park and as it was quite large just added a backing piece of card stock and a ribbon.
6" Square Scalloped Card Blank - Boyes
Card Stock - Bazzill
Die Cut Shape - Silhouette Store Subway Art by Echo Park #40693
Ribbon - Ribbon Store

For this second card I used this cute Sassy Cheryl's image which I cut out with my Silhouette Cameo (I love how neat it cuts around the image) before colouring with Promarkers & Flexmarkers. I also cut the mat layer and the paw border on my Silhouette. I teamed the card with First Edition 'Sweet Owl' papers and some heart pearls. I haven't added a sentiment as this card could be used for a few occasions.
