Try Something New with Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #4



This week over at 
it's all about trying something 
(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
http://www.bugaboostamps.com/

 and 
Stamp and Create 
$20 Gift Certificate

Try something new and share it with us! 
I can't wait to see what you create
