Time for another challenge from Creative Inspiration and this time we want to see you using your 'Templates' to create a project. The prize this time has been kindly donated by The Cutting Cafe. They have loads of different templates and cutting sheets so why not pop over and have a look. Now dust off all those templates that you haven't used for ages and have a play with them, can't wait to see what you create.

The Dt were lucky enough to be given some templates to play with so I have made a card and pillow box. Having first turned the sketch I layered my base card with papers and a doily to frame the image. I then cut a strip of white card and attached a piece of blue organza ribbon across it. On top I placed a narrow piece of blue sparkly ribbon. I coloured the main digi image (comes in two parts, pot & flowers) with Promarkers and then cut each piece out. I layered foam pads in different heights underneath to give a rounded look to the pot and flowers. Having placed the main image onto the card I added a few punched butterflies with gem bodies. I made the pillow box to match. Although you can't really see it properly, sorry, it has a heart shaped aperture. These were very simple to make and make a nice gift. Hope you like them, thanks for looking.
