Followers Gadget - Card Challenge

I have just added the followers gadget to my blog. I would love for you to click on it and be added. I will make sure to visit your blog regularly once you are added.

Now on to business. I have been following my friend Beth as she has been making these awesome cards for the Cuttlebug Challenge. I have some of the folders and decided I needed to play with them more. This card will go to my hubby on Valentines day.....I must tell you that after 42 years of marriage we don't usually do anything special. I used two different folders and also the Top Note Die folder from Stampin' Up! The base layer for the card is Stampin' Up! Pink Pirouette, followered by Whisper White run through the cuttlebug then inked with my Color Box Chalk Inks, thanks for making me use them Beth! I have added Red Organdy Ribbon and Red Striped Grosgrain across the half piece of Top Note Die which was cut from the Real Red cardstock. I had a heart brad that I removed the prongs of and used a piece of dimensional to attach to the middle knot of the grosgrain. I have a second one in the works but the glitter is not dry.

Hi, Cheryl! Cute card - I love the heart on the ribbon. ;
Now, the rooster set. :D It's the one hostess preorder I purchased, and I'm glad I did - I've had several hostesses tell me that, now that they've seen it in use, THAT is the one they're working for. :D I'm not too unhappy about that, let me tell you.... :D
Have a wonderful day! See you soon!
