Try Something New with Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #4

This week over at  CRAFTY GALS CORNER  it's all about trying something  NEW! (new technique, fold, item, style)
I decided to try a new fold. I always find myself doing the same ol' basic fold. And I'm glad I decided to  try this new fold, it's easy peasy! I realized  I really need to start breaking out of my comfort zone.   I also got creative with my embellishments.  I have to say I'm really liking the look of this card! I hope you enjoy it, too.
So here's the card I made using  an Upright Z Fold!
I used a Bugaboo Digital Image,
Valentine Jar colored with COPICS, layered with
PTI Simple Valentine DP and finished off
with Queen & Co. Pearls.

We are very fortunate to have  two great sponsors this week:
 Bugaboo Stamps  7 Digital Images
 and  Stamp and Create $20 Gift Certificate
Try something new and share it with us!  I can't wait to see what you create for  Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #4.
