    10. Hi! It's a fabulous card but I'm sorry to say that we at WOC only allow two more challenges but our own. Lucky there is a lot of time to make another card and another entry. :)

    11. Samantha this is a "beary" cute card. I love how you embellish your designs with fabulous glittery accents.

    12. What is the actual duration of using stickles before one is considered "being carried away?" I for one, can't really think of a time frame.
      I LoVe your image and your card and your great paper piecing work. Nicely done :D
