Best Buds

I have been playing with one of the gorgeous Printable Card Toppers from Pink Gem Designs, this one is called Best Buds and comes with two fabulous sentiments and some decoupage layers.

I have made two cards, this first one has been made using the kit just as it is, I printed it, cut it out and layered it up.

The only thing that I added was an embossed layer of card stock.

For my second card I have printed the sheet out a couple of times, one a little larger than the others and added extra layers separated by card stock.  I have attached each separate layer using foam pads.

I also cut a couple of extra layers of decoupage.  The only thing that was not included in the Card Topper kit is the card stock.

I would like to enter these cards into the following challenges:

Creative Fingers Challenge 76 - Always Anything Goes
Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge 152 - Flowers
Sister Act Card Challenge #102 - Always Anything Goes
Scrapbooker PhD Challenge 22 - Focus On A Sentiment
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Words Words Words
Through The Craft Room Door Challenge - Always Anything Goes

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.
