Be Inspired - Cuttlebug # 38

This is my first official card as a Cuttlebug Design Team member. The theme for this week's challenge is red, white, and blue and to use buttons. Some of my DT sisters have the not-yet-released stars embossing folder; I used my all-time favorite swiss dots.

I created an aperture for the sentiment using a rectangle Nestibilities and I popped the window panel up on dimensionals. (I know it looks flush in my picture.) I was trying to come up with an Independence Day sentiment. I thought of "you light my fire cracker", but then thought that sentiment would be more appropriate for mature audiences. This blog is rated G :)

Head over to the Cuttlebug Challenge blog to see what the other DT girls have created. Maggie has some wonderful prizes in store for this challenge. Don't forget to check out the Cuttlebug Challenge blog later this week...there is something really special planned...that's all I'm gonna tell you for now (she says with a big cheshire cat grin on her face!)
