Sail away with me

WOO HOO!!!!  I did my first project using my Silhouette Cameo!




I combined a couple challenges on my card.

The first is the Our Craft Lounge challenge to include a boat or something that floats on your project.  I used the Smooth Sailing set from OCL.  The boat is stamped in Ranger Broken China Distress ink.  The sentiment is stamped in black and embossed.

The second challenge is for the brand new The Cameo Spotlight Challenge Blog.  The first TCS Challenge is a Summer Theme.   I cut out a summer subway art piece and used parts of it on my card.  I added some Bananan Art Glitter accents. I LOVE colored glitter! :)


Not bad for my first ever Silhouette Cameo project.  I've had this machine since Christmas (thanks mom!) -- so it was time to jump in and play.
 (Isn't that right Karolyn?!  lol!)

Heck...you might just see a few more Cameo projects in the near future
