Big Impact

I've never tried one of the challenges over at http://cuttlebugchallenge.blogspot.com/ but decided to, well yesterday. It's due in by 11.59 pm tonight so I worked on my idea, and worked on my idea, got my card finished and it started storming here. Now I'm one of those that has the fear of lightning running in on my computer, so off it went and unplugged it and my computer is safe! LOL So I worked on other challenges last night and today. But here is the card I made for the cuttlebug challenge. You have to create your own 'Big Impact' project from small one inch pieces and your cuttlebug. So I decided on what to do and got on my Gypsy and created these 1 inch squares and dome piece from George and Basic Shapes cart. Now here is where I have to tell you that when you do 1 inch by 1 inch on your Gypsy, it doesn't come out that way when you cut them. They were not square at all!! I played around with it until I came up with the right measure to get a square. Oh, let me go get my Gypsy and I'll tell you the measure.......When you're waiting it takes forevvvverrrr!  Okay, they are 1.10 x 1.00. And I got a square. Go figure!! Anyways, I cut 3 of each color and ran them through my cuttlebug using the Tiny Mosaic folder. Them and the arch piece. Used a black pearl bling for the stone. The feet were printed from My Community cart. I flipped some of them so it would look like walking feet. The sentiment was computer generated. Hope ya'll like my card and hope it fits the theme of the challenge. :)
