My first post!

Well, I think it's time to join the blogging world. I'm not sure if I'll be able to update it daily but I will give it a go.
Happy Tuesday! It's overcast and dreary here in Northern Minnesota today. Lake Superior doesn't look very inviting. They're forecasting snow for this evening so maybe we'll have a white Thanksgiving.
Ok, on to the card. I made this card for a design team call but then I never submitted it. The card is 5 1/2 inches square to accommodate the large chipboard star. The chipboard star is from ScenicRoute and covered in BasicGrey Phresh & Phunky Phashion paper. I used my cropodile to punch holes for the Making Memories crystal brads. I felt that the background was too plain so I ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Thanks A2 Embossing Folder. I really like the added effect of the embossed background. The other papers are from a mat pack from WalMart and the base is Cool Caribbean (retired color) from Stampin' Up. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
