2 Challenges, 1 card!




Okay so today's card is for the Peachy keen challenge #31 and The Cuttlebug spot, Celebrate Independence Day. I really like how this card turned out! I used my gypsy and cricut to cut out the star in the center of my mat layer and then cut the same star in white and used the center as the center layer to my mat. I used the cuttlebug embossing folder "stars" to emboss my mat layer. I found some glittery stars in my stash and a word tag which I tied to the card with twine. So this was a pretty easy card to make but somehow took me all day to make, how is that possible?!! Thanks for checking it out and let me know what you think! Have a great day!!
