Birthday Fun With Gallery Idol

I thought I'd ease back into blog land since I've missed out on so much.  Then I saw that the Gallery Idol Challenge has begun, and I couldn't resist!  I loved watching the talented ladies last year, and really learned so much.  So I worked on a couple of entries:


I cut the candy dish in both papers with my Silhouette, combined them, and then put acetate on the back.  The front panel is raised to let the "candy" show through.  I punched out 1/2" circles from the same paper pad and added Glossy Accents and loose glitter.  Looking now at the Idol gallery, I see the PS sentiments are very popular so I won't be getting marks for originality there, oh well, who can resist those PS stamps?


I'll be back with the other card I made today for the the challenge in a little bit.  Until then, thanks for coming over!

Have a great day,
Kara Lynne
