Hey and hello CUT to YOU family, Karen here with you and I am so excited to join this amazing team this month. I would like to give Gwen a huge THANK YOU for inviting me to part of your world here at Cut To You. I have been such a fan and still pinch myself that I am here.

Did you know that Cut To You sponsors the CSI challenge every month? I am going to work on solving cases each and every month. I hope you will play along with me!

So onto my (gulp!) first creation for Cut To You using the gorgeous Floral Ampersand file which you can find here in the shop

I was completely inspired by the tropical feel in CSI CASE File No.363. You can get more details on the evidence you need here .

I kicked things off by backing the flowers and leaves with patterned paper and left the main component clear from backing and created a mixed media background that would peak through the cut file.

You can see how I created this one here –

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you can join in on the fun challenges at CSI this month, make sure you share and tag #CuttoYou! we love to see your creations.
