As Susan told you earlier this morning, the Paper Crafts editors will be creating cards to coincide with the challenges Cath is hosting over on the Moxie Fab World blog each day this week as we celebrate our new special issue 75 Creative Card Challenges.

By luck of the draw, I’m kicking off this little party. And I’m not gonna lie – when we drew our challenges from the hat and I saw “Use 10 Embellishments on a card” on my little slip of paper, I immediately started negotiating to trade. But in my defense, no one was willing to trade so I wasn’t alone in my panic. icon smile 75 Creative Card Challenges Week   Use 10 Embellishments on a card

Perfect scenario for a challenge to stretch my creativity, right? I put on my big girl pants and got to it. Here’s my card:
