Pink Stamper Design Team Call - Challenge

Well, I have decided to take a different kind of plunge in the crafting world.  I have never participated in a crafting challenge so this is a little exciting for me.  I have been a huge follower of My Pink Stamper for quite some time now and love all her ideas and she has a great fun personality that I really enjoy in her videos.  I have faithfully watched her videos, especially when figuring out my cricut expression, and learned so much.  Every time she posts the opportunity to be apart of her design team I sit and think how awesome it would be to be on the team.  I have been nervous to try out because I could still improve on my skills.  However, it all the sudden hit me, what is the point of that?  I love crafting and I would love to share my growth and progress with others so I am taking the plunge.  YAY!!!!

The challenge is to use your favorite cartridge and the following colors:
(Any other color you would like)

I really had to think about this for a little while.  I was a little unsure what I was going to do because the colors are a little of a stretch for my creativity but once I came up with a plan I really LOVED the colors together!  I already love challenges!

I saw this adorable idea for a card on Ruthie's, September Ninth, blog.  I loved that it was a free standing pop up card.  This is one of my new favorite kind of cards!  SOOO CUTE!!!

This is the view what it looks like when it is closed.  You just pull the tag part sticking out and it turns into a free standing card like the picture above!  Awesome huh?

Well, that is my project!  Wish me luck!  I am really anxious and excited!
