Krafty Girls Challenge#1

If you came from Karen's blog, you are on the right track.  If you would like to start from the beginning please head over to Krafty Girls HERE. Please keep reading for a chance to win some candy:)

I'm SUPER excited for our launch today!! This is our first Krafty Girls challenge.  Our first challenge is called Home Sweet Home.  It can be any type of paper project that is based on a place where you are from, lived in once, or just has any special meaning to you. Our challenges are pretty open to your own interpretation, we just want you to have fun!

I chose New York City.  I am not from NYC, but it would be so cool if I was!  I was actually born in Mexico and my husband is from Brooklyn.  He tells me these stories about going into the city all the time and it sounds fascinating to me.  Ever since I was very young I was intrigued by New York, maybe because I watched I Love Lucy every day:)  It looks like such a fun place to live!

I am linking up with: Sentimental Sundays : Shaped cards

Here is my card:
I used my newest cart, Victorian Romance, for the card base.  This heart shape is gorgeous!! Lots of cute cuts on this cart. Lady Liberty is from Stand and Deliver as well as the fireworks.  The skyline is from Plantin Schoolbook.  The water was embossed with the Woodgrain folder from Tim Holtz.  I wasn't sure how that would turn out, but it actually does look like water.

I added pop dots to give the skyline, Statue of Liberty and fireworks for some dimension.

I loved how it turned out!

In honor of our launch we are having a blog hop.  I am giving away some candy:

You have two ways to win this cartridge:
1. Be a follower of mine, and a Krafty Girls follower.
2. Spread the word about this blog candy.

That is it! I will post the winner of this blog candy February 28th.  The winner will be chosen using Random.org

Your next stop is Stephanie.
