 Welcome all to another fabulous challenge at 

We are sponsored by

Meljen's Designs

Our challenge is to use "Gray, Pink & Kraft".

We have some family challenges going on right now as well.  My sister first challenged my cousin and me to use sequins.  My cousin is now challenging us to use a stand up die from Elizabeth Crafts.  She gave them to us a while back but I had forgotten as they were in my sister's craft room.  I just love them.  It makes an easel card so easy to do.  I now have no excuse to not make them.

Here is a side view of my card.

The image I chose is called Hot Air Balloon.  It had a little heart on it so I used the heart die from Elizabeth Crafts to go along with it.  I was not going to do a fussy cut but I am really bad at making the background.  I'm going to have to learn that some day.

I do hope you will join us in this challenge and please hop over to the CWWC blog and check out all the wonderful creations that my DT sisters have made.
