Just recently at church we had a program for our young women called "New Beginnings".  It is designed to introduce the 11 year old girls into our young women's program.  They will enter when they turn 12.  We make a real big deal out of it.  

We had two people who helped so much to make it a perfect night.  One lady made us a cake for the girls.  It was fabulous.  She makes wedding cakes for a living and this one was so good.  The other is a young women that will be leaving us soon as she will be graduating from high school this year.  She decorated the room we were in just beautifully.  It was just such a beautiful night.  

Both of these women deserve so much for this effort.  This is just a small token of appreciation, a thank you card that we will have everyone sign for them.  I hope they enjoy it.  

I used some new things I got from my wonderful sister to make this.  The stamps are from Our Daily Bread, Stampendous and Bo Bunny.  The die cut is also from Our Daily Bread.  I used embossing powder from Whispers and the metal corners are from Momenta.  The papers are Core 'dinations and some generic.

These are the challenges I have entered:
