Its a New Challenge at 
Star Stampz Challenge Blog

The theme is "All About the Girls!"  Mine is all about this super cute girl dangling on a Christmas ornament! Isn't she lovely?  I am so tickled pink to try a new card layout.  Its called the "Gate Fold" card and I LOVE it!  I will be making many more cards using this design!

Now, for my card


I showed this other picture too just to show you how it looks slightly opened.  The oval is not completely glued to the front, but only on one half of it.  That way, you can open the card in the middle with no problem.  Inside is a simple sentiment.
