I'M ON A ROLL -- ANOTHER CARD FOR CHALLENGES!!!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!!!  Hope all's well!

I'm in a hurry to get this posted because as you may have heard we are in for a severe snow blizzard here, and I've already encountered some minor interference internet problems related to snow on the trees and wires.

This card I made specifically to fit the requirements of two (2) challenges:  Craft Your Passion and The Cuttlebug Spot.

For this card I welded 3of the label images from the Story Book cart to create the tri-fold card, the word "Love" is from the Love Struck cart, and the hearts are from the Plantin cart.  I don't know the name of the folder, but I used Cuttlebug and a Cuttlebug folder for all the embossing.  To embellish, I added Rhinestones and Stickles for the bling.

Here's my card:

Here are a few close-ups:




Can you believe this is me -- actually doing all these challenges?!!!  Gotta keep those resolutions for the new year!  LOL!!!

Well, that's it for now.  I'll be back with more stuff!!!
