 As my final CARDS Challenge this month at
I combined a scalloped Easter egg, welded phrase
 (both SVGs that I cut with my brand new eCraft)
and of course the sweetest March Nook Kit 
featuring All Dolled Up by My Mind's Eye!
I managed to eek out a pretty pitiful card sketch, but I think it works :)
and here's my card:
Would love to have you play along!  Just click the link above to take you to the MSN Forum :)

I got an email from Michelle, owner of Vintage Street Market.  
My banner birthday card was featured in an article, "Layering is HOT"

Ummm, my little card pales in comparison to the gorgeous layouts showcased there, but
I'm pretty stoked none-the-less!
Check out their super-informative site if you haven't...tons of information and inspiration :)
