Time for Play

Hi Folks
Happy Valentines Day to you all.  I have had a busy week at work and am now looking forward to my three day weekend.  So nice not having to work Mondays anymore.

Tonight I managed to sit down and have a good play with my new Brother Scan and Cut machine.  I decided that I was going to make a card using the shapes and designs preloaded into the machine.  Here is what I came up with.  


The paper, sentiment and die cut butterfly are from the Time Flies collection from Craftwork Cards.  I cut the shape of the backing paper on the Scan and Cut.  The decorative frame was also cut using my machine along with the butterfly border.  I added some gilding flakes to the border and the frame.  Some inking of the edges, some gems and stickles completed the project.  

It is quite basic but pleased with my first full project.  I must say the Scan and Cut has not disappointed so far.  It has cut out everything beautifully and I have found it really easy to use.  

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Stamping Sensations - Wings, Fantasy and Fiction
Crafting By Designs - Anything goes
TTCRD - Anything goes
A Creative Romance - Lets get sentimental

Hi Mags a fabulous project with your new machine! Love the butterfly border. I got a Silhouette Cameo for my birthday last year and I find that really easy to use unlike the Cricut! Have a lovely three days off. Susan xx
