Making paper out of Silhouette patterns with my Cameo

Hello Friends,

I've been playing around with this weeks free shape over at the Silhouette store.  I decided not to cut it out but instead to colour it to make a print and cut file for part of my card design......

The inspiration for the colours came from Make my Monday.  I uploaded the colours into my Silhouette Studio program and was able to grab the exact colours from there to make my printed peices.

The inspiration for the card design came from Retro sketches #22.

The patterns were both downloaded from Silhouette America along with one of my favourite flower downloads "daisies".

Even though this is not the best card I've ever made, I will still be entering it into both of the above challenges.  This card was just to practice techniques I learnt a while a go but hadn't used very much.

Let me know what you think.

Hope you have some to craft today with your Silhouette Cameo ;) !
