Bloggers challenge

For this week's bloggers challenge I want to show two cards. One is a suspension card, and although i'm not crazy at the final result, but I decided to show both creations anyway. Sometimes you need to make something that didnt work, so you can truly appreciate what does.

Yes, the suspension part works, but i'm not sure i'm loving the design.. Oh well.. In my opinion the second card is MUCH better. :)

I love the dimension that the embossing folder adds to this card. The cup will be available from your demonstrator September 1st! I made this second card for my hostess Cathie for her workshop the other night. She was so excited to get it and that just makes me happy. :) Thanks for popping by, and please check out what my girlfriends of the bloggers challenge group are up to today!

Fun cards. Love the ornament as a Hot Air Balloon (way to think out of the box) - Your card with the buttons is so cool.
