WOW WEDNESDAY

I made this card for my husband's birthday yesterday.  I purchased the dies from Cat's after admiring the card she made at The Collins Show this past fall.  I  had to get her card to see exactly how to make it.  Really pretty simple to assemble once I was able to see the example closer.

I used a turquoise and dark brown cardstock by Bazzill for the card.  I chose the colors of the cardstock to compliment the stickers, which are by Imaginisce and Karen Foster.

Here is a close-up where you can see the stickers a little closer.  The last sticker by Karen Foster is one of the "lil stackers" and is very dimensional.  I wish I could have taken a picture of Butch's face when he opened the card.  He is planning to take it to work to display on his desk.  That he loved it so much is priceless.

Thanks for stopping by this WOW Wednesday and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a prize.  Go back to Cat's blog and visit everyone's blog and leave comments on their blogs for more chances to win.
