Up Up and Away

There's a new store opening up called Love to Stamp and today I'm previewing "Up Up and Away" which will be available on May 16th! Check out the Love to Stamp Blog for more sneak peeks! Love to Stamp is also sponsoring Stamp Something challenges this week.

I'm one of the lucky duckies that will be showing you some previews and joining the Little Darlings Design Team! There are some cute girl images and I can't wait to show you more. My card uses some postcard paper I found at the local craft store and I thought it would be perfect with the baker's twine.

The metal tag was created with a Cuttlebug tag die and then impressed with a metal stamp. I found the sheets of metal in a craft store near the woodworking and handcrafts section. It's really thin so it can be molded easily - I 've even used it successfully in an embossing folder!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafts 4 Eternity Challenges (anything goes)
Fussy and Fancy Challenges (springtime)
Paper Cutz Challenge #89 (anything goes)
Simply Create Challenge #42 (metal)
