Just Us Girls Wild Card Challenge

 

Happy Saturday...yes, yes, I know what am I thinking with a fall card in the middle of this gorgeous spring we are having?  Well...I picked up this beautiful Teresa Collins patterned paper and I was itching to use it!  It said fall to me...so I made a fall card!  Elise is hosting the Wild Card challenge for us at  Just Us Girls.  If you haven't stopped by her blog before you should...she is always full of fun and kindness!  Her challenge is for us to use a zipper on this card.  And I will say...it was a challenge for me.  The zipper and I weren't quite getting along.. but I stuck with it!  I'd love to see what you create with a zipper.  Are you ready to give it a go?
Please stop by and check out the gorgeous creations from the other design team members!
