Kara's 100 Weeks of Inspiration


Hi there, do you follow Kara's blog?  Well if you do, every Friday you are used to seeing her post the most recent week of card inspiration she has found on Pinterest.  I love her Friday posts and since she's posted for 100 weeks...she is offering a challenge:  Kara's 100 Weeks of Inspiration. The challenge is to pick a card from her inspiration file on Pinterest,   I love so many of the cards she has pinned, but settle on Cristina's card below.  I think the masking is beautiful.  Despite a couple of tries I couldn't get my masking as neat as hers so I decided to put a sentiment panel on top.  I'm still happy with the end result.  And...this card is going to my niece who left for Alaska last week for her first college internship.  I popped it in the mail to her yesterday to let her know we're thinking of her and hope that she has a fabulous time.
