Just Us Girls Wild Card Challenge


Happy New Year's Eve!  Do you have any big plans for tonight?  Normally, I'm very content to sit at home with the boys and celebrate the new year.  This year we'll be going down the street to a neighbors for an adult only party :).

For today's  Just Us Girls challenge, Lisa is hosting us.  She is challenging us to make something with felt.  I love it because I don't get my felt out often enough, but I always love it when I do.  For my card, I used a Sizzlit that also embossed the snowflake image.  I ran it through my Big Shot two times to make sure the cut was clean and that the embossing showed.  To add a bit more to my CAS card I scored a few lines and added a few stars.  All stamps are from Hero Arts.  The button adds just a touch of color.  This card will be going along with a hostess gift for our party host tonight.
What do you think?  I hope you get the chance to play along.

Please stop by and check out the gorgeous creations from the other design team members!
