The card I am sharing to day is for the Paper Players' challenge "Anything Goes" with a Fall theme. Actually, I cased this card from the December Stampin' Success magazine. I just love this magazine with it's fabulous articles and project ideas. I try and do at least 1 from each month. You too, could start receiving this magazine by becoming a Stampin' Up Demonstrator and guess what.... the Big Shot promotion is still on until November 11, 2011. That's a $125 promotion available free when you sign up to become a demonstrator.
It's as easy as 1..2..3.. Just visit my Stampin' Up! website
The article that peaked my interest this month is about Emboss Resist and challenging yourself to think more than one layer of embossing.
