Hero Arts Challenge


Hello Stampers!  Today I'm sharing a card I designed using a sketch for the Hero Arts April Challenge.  There are 3 sketches to choose from as well as 2 catagories.  The catagories are Sunshine and Showers and Shaped Cards.  Hop on over and check it out.  5 people will receive $50 in product.  The patterned paper is from a new pad I got at Joann's this week.   It's an 8 x 8 paper pad by Colorbok.  There are lots of really cute matching embellishments as well.
Hope your having a great week!
Melisa
