Another FIRST!!!

Yep.  I FINALLY got up the courage to make a card for the Hero Arts monthly challenges!  I just purchased a gorgeous set of Hero Arts hearts at my local craft room and when I saw their color challenge this month, it was fate!  Let's take a look at the card, shall we?

Here it is~


For these fabulous challenges~


(use text in your CAS design)

So, I am hoping this good enough for these challenges!  My photos are not as good as I wish they could be--I'm having lighting issues and need a solution, but haven't found a good inexpensive one.  Anybody have a suggestion?!

To make this card, I used all Hero Arts stamps, Stampin' Up! ink and buttons, baker's twine and sticky back rhinestones from my stash, a DCWV textured card, and a Sizzix dry embossing folder!  I think it turned out really cute--what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my little creation!  Thanks to all my new followers--I feel so honored that over 200 of you feel my little blog is worth looking at each day!  Please enter my blog candy as a thank you!  Happy stamping, friends! :)
